Graphics-ARIA and Graphics-AAM wide review drafts available

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group has published 
Working Drafts of:

  * WAI-ARIA Graphics Module 1.0:
  * Graphics Accessibility API Mappings:

The WAI-ARIA Graphics Module defines core roles specific to web graphics 
that allow an author to express the logical structure of the graphic to 
assistive technologies. Graphics Accessibility API Mappings defines how 
user agents map roles in this module to the features of accessibility 
APIs. When supported by user agents, these features allow authors to 
create accessible rich internet applications, including charts, graphs, 
and other drawings. These two specifications provide general tools for 
graphics accessibility and are referenced by the SVG Accessibility API 
Mappings, which is now being developed by the SVG Working Group.

The ARIA Working Group believes feature development for the 1.0 versions 
of these specifications is complete. These drafts are published for wide 
review to solicit final comments before advancing these specifications 
to Candidate Recommendation.

Comments are requested by 2 March 2018. To comment, please file issues 
in the issue tracker for the appropriate specification:

  * Graphics-ARIA:
  * Graphics-AAM:
