Matt,

Good work! Just some thoughts:

Shouldn't this document also include examples for usage of new exciting ARIA 1.1 roles and properties plus adding some links to sources of information for Browser/AT support of new ARIA 1.1 roles and properties?

Others do already examples: http://www.ets-research.org/ia11ylab/aria11spec/

I don't expect such references in the core spec but this is a practical guide. It also does not list references of ARIA 1.0 support such as https://www.powermapper.com/tests/screen-readers/aria/.

I know that linking to external resources is always at risk but maybe there is a way to make that fact clear and link to a W3C page collecting these statistics.

Best,
Stefan

Subject: Seeking Review of Practices in preparation for CFC to Publish as a Note

Hello All,

The Practices Task Force is planning to request a call for consensus in early December to publish the first release of the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices  1.1 as a companion Note to the ARIA 1.1 specification. Our target is to request a 7-day CFC on December 4 so that we can publish the practices note on December 14.

While we are still wrapping up a few loose ends, the guide is review-ready. And, we believe it is now a minimally viable product that delivers significant value even though it does not yet cover 100% of ARIA 1.1.

The task force would greatly appreciate review and feedback. Especially let us know if there is anything you believe needs to be changed or added before it is fit to be published as a W3C Note.

The editor's draft is at:
http://w3c.github.io/aria-practices/

Our current milestone, listing issues we intend to close before publication is:
