How would a sighted user  be aware of the existence of landmarks in the
first place?

Victor,
I agree to some extent but feel that this should be implemented by the
browser, not AT.
(as was noted by the style guide group in the previous link).
Landmark roles will be very useful for keyboard-only users as well as AT
users.

Regards,
James

		landmark area navigation? tabindex="-1" is already in
place ..

		Here is my new ARIA landmark role example, please check
the markup to 
		see if it is what you are expecting for land mark roles.
		
		http://test.cita.uiuc.edu/aria/nav/nav1.php
		
		Questions:
		1. I didn't know what to put for a "aria-labelledby" on
the 
		"contentinfo" role.  Is that OK?
		
		2. Does this need a role of application?
		
		Sandy you can use this page for testing the extension
changes.
