Comment on Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.0

Comment based on Editor's Draft of 16 April 2012, archived at:


What is an accessible description?

ARIA includes an algorithm for calculating accessible names and
descriptions (§5.2.7). The term "accessible name" has a normative
definition (§4). The term "accessible description" should also be
defined. Examples should be given of the difference between the two.
