W3C Invites Implementations of Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.2

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group invites implementations of the Candidate Recommendation Snapshot of Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.2. This document describes how user agents should expose semantics of web content languages to accessibility APIs. This helps users with disabilities to obtain and interact with information using assistive technologies. Documenting these mappings promotes interoperable exposure of roles, states, properties, and events implemented by accessibility APIs and helps to ensure that this information appears in a manner consistent with author intent.
