Re: Use of ARIA to satisfy 'Identify common purpose' SC

Hi David,

I’m fairly sure it is an update to the previous version. I read the spec previously, the structure is similar and the types of content are the same (e.g. field, link, button), it’s just a change of attribute name.

I’m not involved, but working backwards I’d guess the ARIA WG came to a decision about the name, generalising beyond the COGA use-case.

I can’t see a definition, but perhaps it means ARIA UI?  Hmm, that would be an acronym inside an acronym, perhaps just accessible UI?

Hi Lisa (or anyone else who knows)

How do the new personalization semantics of coga-* vs uia-* relate to one another.

Is UIA-field just an update to COGA-field or is there something new happening here?
