Call for Review: WAI-ARIA 1.1, DPub Roles, Accessibility API Mappings, and Authoring Practices Working Drafts

Michael Cooper-2
Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group (ARIA
WG) invites you to comment on updated Working Drafts of:

* Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.1
    http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-1.1/
* Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0
    http://www.w3.org/TR/dpub-aria-1.0/
* Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.1 (Core-AAM)
    http://www.w3.org/TR/core-aam-1.1/
* Accessible Name and Description: Computation and API Mappings 1.1
(AccName-AAM)
    http://www.w3.org/TR/accname-aam-1.1/
* Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings 1.0 (DPub-AAM)
    http://www.w3.org/TR/dpub-aam-1.0/
* WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices 1.1
    http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.1/

These documents are part of the WAI-ARIA suite introduced at
https://www.w3.org/WAI/ARIA/intro.

*Comments*: This version of ARIA 1.1 removes the aria-describedat
property and adds the aria-details property to fill a similar use case,
deprecates the aria-grabbed state and aria-dropeffect property, and
changes values of other properties. DPub Roles changes the doc-locator
role to doc-backlink, removes doc-title and doc-footnotes, and adds
doc-endnote and doc-endnotes. Updates to Accessibility API Mappings
specifications provide mappings for new and updated WAI-ARIA 1.1
features and expand of previous mappings, including for native host
language features. WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices provides additional
refinements to the authoring guidance.

Please submit comments the the publicly-archived e-mail:

by *15 April 2016*

*Versions*: WAI-ARIA 1.0 is currently a W3C Recommendation and is the
recommended version for production user agent implementations and
authors at this time. The specifications published today are Working
Drafts and subject to change. 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 status of
WAI-ARIA versions is updated in the WAI-ARIA FAQ
http://www.w3.org/WAI/aria/faq.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for
your comments.
Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid
cross-postings where possible.
