Tobias, I now see you are already using aria-query project ... cool.

Another project that is related and would simplify this is the accessibility object model:

Tobias,

Another like this is:
https://github.com/A11yance/aria-query

There are several organizations that have similar needs. I think there are enough of us who are W3C members and who also participate in ARIA to form a project that could become part of ARIA itself. Would you be interested in contributing to such an effort? Any others?

Matt

Hi,

as a web developer, I sometimes wish I could easily access ARIA roles and attributes from JavaScript. I was looking for a library that would allow me to do that, but did not find one. So I wrote my own:

  https://github.com/xi/aria-api

Now I would be very happy to get some feedback, especially:

- Are there already libraries that do what I want? Are there better ways to do it?

- Do you know of any test cases I could include?

- Can you think of use cases for this kind of library. I feel that it
*should* exist, but I can only think of a handful of useful applications.
