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:
      http://www.w3.org/TR/dpub-aria-1.0/

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 <http://www.w3.org/blog/2015/07/aria-and-dpub-publish-fpwd/>.

Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 is part of a suite of WAI-ARIA-related specifications introduced in the WAI-ARIA Overview at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria>.
