Abstract


The Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings (DPub-AAM) defines how user agents map the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module [dpub-aria-1.0] markup to platform accessibility APIs. It is intended for user agent developers responsible for accessibility in their user agent so that they can support the accessibility content produced for digital publishing.

The implementation of this specification in enables authors to produce more accessible e-books, by conveying structural book constructs used by the digital publishing industry to assistive technologies. It does this by extending the Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.1 (CORE-AAM) [CORE-AAM] and the Accessible Name and Description: Computation and API Mappings 1.1 (ACCNAME-AAM) [ACCNAME-AAM] specifications for user agents. It provides Accessibility API Mapping guidance for the roles defined in the Digital Publish WAI-ARIA Module.

The DPub-AAM is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.

Feedback on any aspect of the specification is accepted. For this publication, the Digital Publishing ARIA Task Force particularly seeks feedback on the following questions:Are mappings of DPub roles clear and appropriate? Is the relationship of this specification to Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.1 and Accessible Name and Description: Computation and API Mappings 1.1 clear? Is the relationship of this specification to Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module and WAI-ARIA 1.1 clear?
