Hi Tobias,
For your naming computation, are you using the same algorithm as included within the Sample JavaScript Recursion Algorithm folder in the archive at
https://github.com/accdc/w3c-alternative-text-computation ?

To ensure consistency, it is important for everybody to use the same algorithm if possible so that conflicting results are not experienced between differing utilities.

This algorithm is based on the W3C discussion at

Within this archive is a redistributable JavaScript function that returns the computed Name and Description properties that can be used to calculate the same values across platforms to gage accuracy in the accessibility tree equally within differing browsers.

All the best,

my a11y-outline extension is now available for firefox:


I would be happy about reviews/feedback.

If you like it, also have a look at the underlying aria-api[1] javascript library.
