W3C Invites Implementations of Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.1

September 21st, 2017

Core Accessibility API Mappings (Core-AAM) 1.1 has been published by Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) Working Group as a Candidate Recommendation and is now undergoing implementation finalization and testing. Core-AAM describes how roles, states, and properties in Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.1 should be exposed to accessibility APIs. Implementation of this specification makes it possible for users with disabilities to obtain and interact with information using assistive technologies. These mappings will also be used in part for verifying implementation success of WAI-ARIA 1.1 which is already a Candidate Recommendation. The draft implementation report shows the progress of testing. Please send implementation information or comments by 19 October 2017. Read about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
