Hi everyone,

I see this sentence in the WAI-ARIA Primer:

"Implementing WAI-ARIA can facilitate test automation. Test engines require
semantic information about user interface elements, unique names, exposure
of state, specific properties in order to run automated test scripts.
WAI-ARIA provides that semantic information needed for efficient test
automation."

Does anyone have further information & references related to this statement,
know anyone who is actually using ARIA to benefit their automation process,
or people to contact about it?

Katherine
