Welcome to our two part discussion on ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) and HTML5.
During XTech2008, Anne and I had a chance to sit down and talk about the current state of the “ARIA in HTML5” debate. Anne gives an overview of ARIA and the controversy over naming of ARIA attributes and makes some suggestions as to how the community can move forward.
Next week, Anne sits down with Lachlan Hunt, editor of the W3C’s Selectors API specification, to chat about implementations, open issues, and where that spec is headed.
(We will try to make the original video files available in due course. Flash sucks too, but it’s our best bet currently.)
