There is no instruction or guidance in the HTML5 specification on how user
agents should provide access to the content of the title attribute. Currently
no browsers provide access to title attribute content (firefox does provide it
, but in a way that is next to useless and not in any way equivalent to the
method that mouse users can access it) for users who cannot use a mouse. This
is a serious accessibility barrier. It is proposed that the specification
include normative instructions for user agents to provide fucntionally
equivalent access the title attribute content using the keyboard.
