Personalization Semantics Content Module First Public Working Draft, and Personalization Semantics Explainer

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) Working Group has 
published a First Public Working Draft of Personalization Semantics 
Content Module 1.0:
as well as an updated draft of Personalization Semantics Explainer 1.0:

Personalization Semantics defines standard terms to enable user-driven 
personalization, such as the association of a user-preferred graphical 
symbols to elements having those semantics. This ensures that users can 
quickly find familiar icons, such as a help icon, that apply to user 
interface elements. The Personalization Semantics Explainer was previous 
published as Personalization Semantics which contained all the 
properties proposed for the level 1 version of the technology. The 
properties have now been moved to modules, and the core document takes 
the role of Explainer which explains general use cases and introduces 
the vocabulary and anticipated uses. Properties are now presented as 
generic vocabulary terms rather than ARIA properties, and can be 
implemented in metadata technologies like WAI-ARIA, HTML Microdata, and 
RDFa. Personalization Semantics Content Module is the first module to be 
published and provides terms that can be used to enhance web content 
with information about controls, symbols, and user interface elements.

Comments are requested by 10 March 2018. To comment, please file GitHub
