================================
Response from the Working Group
================================
Thank you for getting in touch. Our ARIA techniques are available only for
guidance until such time as the ARIA specification becomes a W3C
Recommendation. Some of our techniques will need to be updated when that
occurs.

Please refer to the latest version of the ARIA specification for the latest
implementation examples.

Thanks.
