Graphics Module semantics are used in the sample SVG and a zip containing an HTML page that can exposes the SVG to assistive technology (today). The HTML page uses a script to make a (visible) shadow DOM. That AT can read. The purpose is to provide AT users a way to experience marked up SVG. There are some shortcuts in that descriptions that are intended to be optionally heard are appended as part of the label. Graphics Module related aria- properties are also pasted in, with no opt'ing out.

Using the HTML page

download File:Atsvg.zip

Hiding the shadow DOM

If you find the visible shadow DOM annoying, you can move it offscreen by uncommenting two lines. In Atsvg/svgtools/svgShadowDom.js uncomment lines 318 and 319. Look for the comment

// TODO -- to move the shadow DOM off screen, uncomment out the next two lines
