W3C

Call for Review: DPub-ARIA 1.0 and DPub-AAM 1.0 are W3C Proposed Recommendations

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group has published Proposed Recommendations of Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 and Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings. DPub-ARIA defines a WAI-ARIA module encompassing an ontology of roles, states and properties specific to the digital publishing industry. This allows an author to convey user interface behaviors and structural information to assistive technologies and to enable semantic navigation, styling and interactive features used by readers. User agent implementation to date is shown in the DPub-ARIA implementation report and DPub-AAM implementation report. Comments are welcome through 30 November 2017.
