Relations (Referenced Elements) Tests

N.B. The Core AAM maps ARIA "relations" (properties which reference another element) to platform relations. The State and Property Tests above include assertions for platform relations and, where appropriate, reverse relations. As a result, there is no need for a dedicated set of tests for this area.

Accessibility Tree Tests

Note: Tests here are to cover sections 5.1.1 and 5.1.2. In some cases, the content in those sections is redundant to what is in mapping tables (and thus already covered in the tests above). Things already covered include:

  • Elements with none or presentation as the first mappable role MUST be excluded when no other condition (e.g. being focused) necessitates inclusion.
  • Elements with none or presentation as the first mappable role MUST be included when a specified condition (e.g. being focused) necessitates inclusion.
  • Elements with aria-hidden="true" and their descendants SHOULD be excluded.
  • Elements that may fire an accessibility API event MUST be included.
  • Elements which have a mappable role attribute string, and have not already been excluded due to the rules in 5.1.1, MUST be included.
  • Elements that may fire an accessibility event, if they have not been excluded due to the rules in 5.1.1, MUST be included.

Other ChangeLog entries for which dedicated tests are not needed for 1.1

ChangeLog entries which are normative and have associated testing requirements are listed above under the test(s) which cover that entry. The rest can be found here.

"Changes" to things which no longer exist

  • The "text" role was added to ARIA 1.1, but was later removed.
    • 08-Jun-2016: Removed role text.
    • 22-Feb-2016: IA2 mapping of role="text" changed to ROLE_SYSTEM_STATICTEXT from IA2_TEXT_FRAME.
    • 27-Nov-2015: Added UIA mapping of role="text" as a Text control pattern; and ATK/AT-SPI mapping as ROLE_STATIC.
    • 28-Sep-2015: Added IA2 mapping of role="text".
    • 27-Nov-2014: Added mappings for role text.
  • ARIA lacks a means to implement the popup-for ATK relation type.
    • 14-Mar-2017: Undid the 1.1 addition of RELATION_POPUP_FOR to ATK/AT-SPI mappings of aria-haspopup. While the addition is correct in terms of platform expectations, the ARIA spec provides no means through which user agents could reliably implement this.
    • 12-Sep-2016: Added RELATION_POPUP_FOR to ATK/AT-SPI mappings of aria-haspopup, for ARIA 1.1. N.B. This change has subsequently been undone. See entry for 14-Mar-2017.

Things in the ChangeLog which are non-normative and/or not testable

  • mult. dates: Entries related to "updating default values" when these changes were strictly to the "context" and didn't impact the actual mappings via platform accessibility APIs.
  • 01-Aug-2017: Remove explicit "do not expose STATE_EDITABLE" for roles which are by definition not editable from the ATK mappings.
  • 28-Sep-2015: Removed all MSAA+UIA Express mappings.
  • 11-Nov-2014: Added informative section on relationship between ATK and AT-SPI.
  • 27-Oct-2014: Moved text alternative computation section to its own document.
