    Accessibility of web content requires semantic information about widgets, structures, and behaviors, in order to allow assistive technologies to convey appropriate information to persons with disabilities. This specification provides an ontology of roles, states, and properties that define accessible user interface elements and can be used to improve the accessibility and interoperability of web content and applications. These semantics are designed to allow an author to properly convey user interface behaviors and structural information to assistive technologies in document-level markup. This document is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.

  4. Accessibility at Google
    2009-12-31
    Information access is at the core of Google's mission -- to make the world's information universally accessible and useful. That's why in addition to crawling, indexing and ranking billions of websites, images, videos and other content, we also work to make that content available in all languages and in accessible formats. We want to make information available to everyone, and that includes people with disabilities, such as blindness, visual impairment, color deficiency, deafness, hearing loss and limited dexterity. We've found that providing alternative access modes like keyboard shortcuts, captions, high-contrast views and text-to-speech technology helps everyone, not just people with disabilities. For example, keyboard shortcuts help power users get things done more quickly without using a mouse, speech-to-text technology enables people to skim and search audio content, and custom product themes give people more opportunities to personalize.

  10. General Writing Guidelines for Technology and People with Disabilities
    Anna Cavender 2012-09-15 SIGACCESS.org
    The recommendations in this article reflect current thinking on language for writing in the academic accessibility community. Certain words or phrases can (intentionally or unintentionally) reflect bias or negative, disparaging, or patronizing attitudes toward people with disabilities and in fact any identifiable group of people. Because language can convey these things, it can influence our impressions, attitudes, and even actions. Choosing language that is neutral, accurate, and represents the preference of the groups to which it refers can convey respect and integrity.

  17. WAI-ARIA 1.0 Authoring Practices English
    2010-09-16
    This WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices Guide provides readers with an understanding of how to use WAI-ARIA [ARIA] to create accessible rich internet applications. It describes considerations that might not be evident to most authors from the WAI-ARIA specification alone and recommends approaches to make widgets, navigation, and behaviors accessible using WAI-ARIA roles, states, and properties. This document is directed primarily to Web application developers, but the guidance is also useful for user agent and assistive technology developers. This document is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.
  18. WAI-ARIA 1.0 Primer
    2011-09-28
    The WAI-WAI-ARIA Primer introduces developers to the use of WAI-ARIA [ARIA] for addressing the accessibility of dynamic Web content for people with disabilities. This primer explains the accessibility problems posed by hybrid technologies such as Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language (DHTML) and Asynchronous Java and XML (Ajax). It introduces the technologies to map controls, Ajax live regions, and events to accessibility application programming interfaces (APIs), including custom controls used for Rich Internet Applications. The primer also describes new navigation techniques to mark common Web elements with roles such as menus, primary content, secondary content, banner information and other types of Web structures. These new technologies can be used to improve the accessibility and usability of Web resources by people with disabilities, without extensive modification to existing libraries of Web resources. This document is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.
  19. WAI-ARIA Overview English
    W3C WAI
