Hi, Joanie:

You were tasked in APA to help provide a specific ARIA example for the
below draft comment. Please edit any part of this draft as you deem
useful.

<begin draft comment>

The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group has reviewed
the Distributed Tracing  specification:

https://www.w3.org/tr/2018/wd-distributed-tracing-20181106/

Our review raised the following concern and we want to confirm with you that a user
will not be fingerprinted as a person with some disability when certain
components involved in the distributed trace utilize ARIA markup, which
is conveyed to Accessibility API services, e.g. ATK/AT-SPI on
Linux/Unix, IAccessible2 or UI-Automation on Microsoft Windows, etc.

In the following markup example, the browser will pass data to the
appropriate Accessibility API for the OS. Can you please help us
understand how this user's privacy  is protected in this situation?

--example--

Thank you for your response.

Janina Sajka, APA Chair
Joanmarie Diggs, ARIA Co-Chair
