Issue 876: add draft specification for role label #886
The ARIA Working Group just discussed
The full IRC log of that discussion<jamesn> topic: Label role
<irfan_ali> jn: JG made some updates to this issue
<irfan_ali> jg: nly the roles checkbox, listbox, meter, >radio, searchbox, spinbutton, switch and textbox support name from encapsulation method.
<irfan_ali> mk: there should not be any implementation complication to check the name calculation.
<irfan_ali> jn: looking at reference e.x list box
<irfan_ali> jn: author override the order
<irfan_ali> jn: do we need to come up with a term other than two words
<irfan_ali> mk: there is a complication here. the way author is define right now, it includes the encapsulation.
<irfan_ali> mk: aria encapsulation would have to be different than authors.
<jamesn> GitHub: https://github.com//pull/886
<irfan_ali> jn: I see everything that supports encapsulation, also supports author
<irfan_ali> mk: role label doesn't have any affect on a11y tree. right now author includes encapsulation which is fine.
<irfan_ali> jn: its fine what JG done.
<jamesn> need to add to https://raw.githack.com/jongund/aria/issue876-role-label/index.html#namecalculation
<irfan_ali> mk: its not adding but its rewording
<irfan_ali> jn: it may requires changing to some other stuff as well.
<irfan_ali> jg: we have content and authors name from, do you want third thing that talks about encapsulation?
<irfan_ali> jg: 5.2.7, we need to add a definition of encapsulation
<irfan_ali> mk: i wish it would have been attribute
<irfan_ali> mk: content comes from author so its okay
<irfan_ali> jn: more comments?
<irfan_ali> jn: we will come back to this if anything else to be discussed
<irfan_ali> zakim, next item
<Zakim> agendum 5. "No mention of aria-placeholder in name/description calculation algorithm" taken up [from jamesn]
@jongund - I don't think using role label provides the semantic equivalence of matching
