Can this be done with the personlization task forse?we have extra help support to help build help scaffolding for people with cognitive disabilities. An early draft is at https://rawgit.com/w3c/personalization-semantics/new-format-for-help-module/help/index.html
This can be considered a form of annotation and we should work together on this.

All the best

Dear all,

As former co-chair and editor of those specifications, I'm very happy to answer questions about the the Web Annotation work.  Reading the position paper from Microsoft, I don't see anything that cannot be accommodated. Microsoft even hosted one of the Annotation WG outreach events in Berlin, in 2016, for which we were and remain very grateful.

Kindest regards,

Rob Sanderson

 Subject: Microsoft's ARIA annotations proposal
  Hello, I was reading the  ARIA annotations issue and the linked Microsoft Position Paper on Annotations.
  All I can say is, yes, we need this. With perhaps a few minor tweaks, the proposal is already pretty solid. It would solve a lot of real problems in group document editors. This would be very helpful for end users.
  I'd like to see annotations sooner than the 1.4 time frame, and look forward to implementing in Chrome, and working with platform API specs and AT vendors as well.
  I propose we get this on the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
  Thank you,
