WAI-ARIA provides an ontology of roles, states, and properties that define accessible user interface elements. It is designed to improve the accessibility and interoperability of web content, particularly web applications. The Accessibility API Mappings describe how user agents should expose semantics of content languages to accessibility APIs across multiple content technologies, including languages incorporating WAI-ARIA as well as features specific to HTML and SVG. WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices recommends approaches to help web application developers make widgets, navigation, and behaviors accessible using WAI-ARIA roles, states, and properties. These documents were previously published by the Protocols and Formats Working Group. SVG-AAM is jointly published with the SVG Working Group.
