Hi Bogdan,

We are working to advance DPUB-ARIA and ARIA 1.1 related specifications through Candidate Recommendation and we require the accessibility API mappings for DPUB-AAM and Core-AAM from you for UIA. We need these to finish up the test harness as well. 

Are they ready? How soon can you create a pull request for both specs. to cover UIA?

Regards,
Rich

UIA is primarily User Interface automation accessibility framework and doesn’t contain strong semantic entities required for digital publishing, so most of the roles in the list would be expressed as combination of TextControlType with LocalizedControlType as well as some attributes on TextPattern.
