Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module Draft Published

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group, in coordination with the Digital Publishing Interest Group, have published an updated Working Draft of Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0. This specification extends WAI-ARIA 1.1 to define an ontology of roles, states, and properties specific to digital publishing to allow authors to convey structural information to assistive technologies, and to enable semantic navigation, styling, and interactive features used by readers.

This version includes new roles, changes the prefix for role names from “dpub” to “doc”, and refines the properties for roles previously defined. The document was previously published by the Protocols and Formats Working Group.
