Dear WAI Interest Group and Digital Publishing Interest Group Participants,

We invite you to comment on a new Working Draft of Digital Publishing 
WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 at:

Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 extends WAI-ARIA 1.1 to define an 
ontology of roles, states, and properties specific to digital 
publishing. It facilitates automated processing and accessibility 
support by providing semantics that are not included in base languages 
such as HTML. It allows authors to convey structural information to 
assistive technologies, and to enable semantic navigation, styling, and 
interactive features used by readers. More information is available in 
the blog post at 

Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 is part of a suite of 
WAI-ARIA-related specifications introduced in the WAI-ARIA Overview at
