First Public Working Drafts: WAI-ARIA 1.2, Core-AAM 1.2, and ARIA Practices 1.2

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group has published First Public Working Drafts of Accessible Rich Internet Applications 1.2 (WAI-ARIA), Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.2 (Core-AAM), and WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices 1.2 (ARIA APG). WAI-ARIA 1.2 continues development of the technology after ARIA 1.1 was completed in December 2017. This version focuses primarily on providing roles to match features of HTML, which is needed by technologies such as Web Components and Accessible Object Model. Core-AAM 1.2 provides accessibility API mappings for these new roles, and ARIA Practices 1.2 describes recommended authoring patterns for these new roles. For more information, see the blog post Accessible Rich Internet Applications 1.2. Read about the Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group and the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
