Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group (ARIA 
WG) invites you to comment on updated Working Drafts of:

* Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.1
* Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0
* Core Accessibility API Mappings 1.1 (Core-AAM)

These documents are part of the WAI-ARIA suite introduced at

*Comments*: This version of ARIA 1.1 removes the aria-describedat 
property and adds the aria-details property to fill a similar use case, 
deprecates the aria-grabbed state and aria-dropeffect property, and 
changes values of other properties. DPub Roles changes the doc-locator 
role to doc-backlink, removes doc-title and doc-footnotes, and adds 
doc-endnote and doc-endnotes. Updates to Accessibility API Mappings 
specifications provide mappings for new and updated WAI-ARIA 1.1 
features and expand of previous mappings, including for native host 
language features. WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices provides additional 
refinements to the authoring guidance.

Please submit comments the the publicly-archived e-mail:
or file an issue in GitHub:
by *15 April 2016*

*Versions*: WAI-ARIA 1.0 is currently a W3C Recommendation and is the 
recommended version for production user agent implementations and 
authors at this time. The specifications published today are Working 
Drafts and subject to change. The stages of specification development 
are explained in How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the 
W3C Process at The status of 
WAI-ARIA versions is updated in the WAI-ARIA FAQ
