W3C Invites Implementations of DPub-ARIA 1.1 and DPub-AAM 1.1

Author(s) and publish date


The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group invites implementations of the following Candidate Recommendation Snapshots:

  • Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.1: Enabling users of assistive technologies to find their way through web content requires embedding semantic metadata about web document structural divisions. This is particularly important for structural divisions of long-form documents and goes along with embedding semantic metadata about web-application widgets and behaviors for assistive technologies. This specification defines a set of WAI-ARIA roles specific to helping users of assistive technologies navigate through such long-form documents.
  • Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings 1.1 defines how user agents map the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module [dpub-aria-1.1] markup to platform accessibility APIs. It is intended for user agent developers responsible for accessibility in their user agent so that they can support the accessibility content produced for digital publishing.

Comments are welcome via GitHub issues by 27 April 2024.
