It is an exciting time for proponents of WAI-ARIA (Web Accessibility Initiative – Accessible Rich Internet Applications). With support introduced in IE 8 (beta), better support in Firefox 3, planned in Opera and mooted in Safari, coupled with the recent changes to the specification making it easier to develop and deploy ARIA based widgets.
Providing detailed examples of ARIA controls including their expected and observed behaviours, it is hoped, will help further understanding of what ARIA is and does.
Two simple ARIA examples:
- Internet Explorer 8 beta or Firefox 3 beta.
- JAWS 7.1+
- Window Eyes 5.5+
