WAS Notes: WAI-ARIA Overview
I'm studying for the WAS certification. These are some of the notes I've taken recently.
Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.1
ARIA is mainly used for screen readers, since it lets users know what’s happening visually on screen, such as:
- If a link opens a dialog
- If an object is expandable, or its content is expanded/collapsed
- If something has changed (live regions)
- What type of control it is (tabs, sliders, dialogs, etc.)
