  • ISSUE-131 "caret-location-API" - This API does not yet provide the ability to supply an assistive technology with the bounds of a drawing object on the physical canvas bound to canvas elements in the canvas subtree. To do this properly the specification needs to provide clickable canvas regions, representing the canvas element in the subtree. This would mean the inclusion of hit testing capability in canvas that would bind pointing device events retrieved from the canvas drawing surface to the canvas subtree. - affects canvas section of spec
  • Bug 11239 Draw Focus - drawFocusRing needs to be separated into separate functions to separate the concept of focus rings and the drawing of visual points of regard for managed children. Also, a defect exists whereby an author can choose to use canDrawCustom when no system setting is provided for how the ring should be drawn and author will be allowed to draw a focus ring without driving a magnifier. (Note: this issue was raised with the chairs, the additional information was provided but not discussed) - affects Focus Management section of Canvas 2D API spec
  • Bug 11342 Text Metric - A text baseline needs to be added to the textMetrics. (Note: the chairs asked for more clarification on what textMetrics were provided, the additional information was provided but not discussed). The revised text is provided in the updated change proposal. - affects Text section of Canvas 2D API spec, last paragraph referencing TextMetrics interface


ARIA Integration

Drag and Drop

  • Drag & Drop Requires Verification. We believe the spec is correct, but we have not verified because we lack an implementation to test with. No need to reference an issue in the spec.
