Tobias,

> aria-api is a set of functions to get ARIA informatiom from the DOM

Since the information is coming from the DOM rather than the browser's accessibility tree, does that mean that aria-api is implementing the accessible name calculation?

> AOM is a draft spec

How much functional overlap do you see between AOM and aria-api?

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks for the feedback so far. I thing the projects mentioned are very different though:

- aria-api is a set of functions to get ARIA informatiom from the DOM
- aria-query is a set of data structures from aria
- AOM is a draft spec
- Va11yS is a collection of examples

I have listed some more related projects at [0]. Each of them certainly has its place, but I felt that something like aria-api was missing.
