ARIA password role


Thank you for responding to us so quickly. I gather that you don’t see it is necessary to have a joint meeting on the security issues related to an ARIA password role. 

Let me try and summarize what you deem to the best course of action:

1. Ensure that the assistive technology is conveyed that this is a custom password role versus the standard HTML password role and this should be conveyed in our specification. 
2. With this addition the password role text is acceptable: <>
3. Although this is separate from ARIA, work with AT vendors to ensure that they notify the AT user of the state of security indicators in browsers: <>

If you agree with this summary the ARIA Working Group will  proceed on this advice.
