Subject: Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings 1.0 is a 
Candidate Recommendation

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group has published 
Digital Publishing Accessibility API Mappings 1.0 as a Candidate 

DPub-AAM describes how roles in the Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 
1.0 (https://www.w3.org/TR/dpub-aria-1.0/) should be exposed via 
platform accessibility APIs. Implementation of this specification makes 
it possible for assistive technologies to provide enhanced navigation 
among landmarks unique to digitally-published documents, and to identify 
document-specific features which should be presented to the user, such 
as crossing a page boundary.

In addition, exposure of these roles via accessibility APIs will be used 
as means to verify successful implementation of the Digital Publishing 
WAI-ARIA Module 1.0, which is currently a Candidate Recommendation, so 
that authors and consumers of digital publications can identify which 
user agents will ensure the maximum accessibility of their content.

Some mappings have been updated since the last Working Draft was 
published; see the change log appendix in the spec:
