Call for Review: Digital Publishing API Mappings First Public Working Draft

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group (ARIA 
WG) invites you to comment on an First Public Working Draft of Digital 
Publishing Accessibility API Mappings 1.0 (DPub-AAM, jointly developed 
with the Digtial Publishing Interest Group):

**About DPUB-AAM*:*

The Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings (DPub-AAM) defines how 
user agents map the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module markup to 
platform accessibility APIs. It is intended for user agent developers 
responsible for accessibility in their user agent so that they can 
support accessibility features in content produced for digital 
publishing. This enables authors to produce more accessible e-books, by 
conveying structural book constructs used by the digital publishing 
industry to assistive technologies.


Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings is a Working Draft and 
subject to change. Eventually it is expected to advance to 
Recommendation. The stages of specification development are explained in 
How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process at: 
<>. The in-progress updates to 
DPub-AAM 1.0 are available in an Editors' Draft at 

**For review*:*

This First Public Working Draft provides guidance on mapping roles 
defined in the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 to accessibility
