Support for WEB ARIA 1.1 upcoming standards.


Jonathan COHN
 

This is just one of several messages / observations I have seen where NVDA appears to not be ready for ARIA 1.1 becoming a standard. Is there an open issue on this? I could be persuaded to try and help with the coding on a branch to incorporate these important changes.

Actually, unknown values are supposed to be treated as "false", according
to 
https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/#aria-haspopup

User agents *MUST* treat any value of aria-haspopup that is not included in

the list of allowed values...as if the value false had been provided.


Both firefox and chrome, with the latest NVDA, say 'submenu' instead of
'dialog'.  Internet Explorer doesn't say anything other than "link".  JAWS
works fine, as you mentioned.

I looked at the NVDA bug list and I don't see anything regarding
aria-haspopup values.  You may want to file a bug for them.

I thought the default for an unknown (or simply "true") value of
aria-haspopup was "menu" so maybe [your version of] NVDA doesn't recognise
that value?

Hi

I tried to use aria 1.1 updates, aria-haspopup= "dialog" for the link

which

will open as a popup, but in JAWS it is announced as a dialog but NVDA it
is reading as a submenu.

Did anyone try this one?

Is it necessary to give advance warning to the link/button which opens

as a

dialog?
