Call for Review: Digital Publishing API Mappings First Public Working Draft

Michael Cooper-2

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group (ARIA WG) invites you to comment on an First Public Working Draft of Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings 1.0 (DPub-AAM, jointly developed with the Digtial Publishing Interest Group):
   http://www.w3.org/TR/dpub-aam-1.0/

*About DPUB-AAM*:

The Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings (DPub-AAM) defines how user agents map the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module markup to platform accessibility APIs. It is intended for user agent developers responsible for accessibility in their user agent so that they can support accessibility features in content produced for digital publishing. This enables authors to produce more accessible e-books, by conveying structural book constructs used by the digital publishing industry to assistive technologies.

*Versions*:

Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings is a Working Draft and subject to change. Eventually it is expected to advance to Recommendation. The stages of specification development are explained in How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process at: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process>. The in-progress updates to DPub-AAM 1.0 are available in an Editors' Draft at <http://w3c.github.io/aria/dpub-aam/dpub-aam.html>.

*For review*:

This First Public Working Draft provides guidance on mapping roles defined in the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 to accessibility APIs.
