(Thanks Andrew for helping tweak the wording )


Identify Purpose (new label) AAA


In content implemented using markup languages, the purpose of controls, icons, and regions can be programmatically determined.




region:  a perceivable section containing content that is relevant to a specific, author-specified purpose and sufficiently important that users may likely want to be able to navigate to the section easily and to have it listed in a summary of the page or may want it hidden for simplified versions. Any area that would require a landmark role would be a region. 


icon: pictogram or ideogram displayed on a screen, that represents an idea or concept, in order to help the user navigate or understand a computer system, content or mobile device, including the images used in AAC communications. Typically an icon conveys its meaning through its pictorial resemblance to a physical object.


All the best
