I see there is an initiative which seems to be gaining ground.

My quick summary is that it provides support so that people with vision or hearing difficulties can better use web pages.

The initiative is called ARIA and involves some additional markup which helps these users.

This markup is not embodied in any existing standards though I believe it may be part of th X/HTML 5 standards whenever they are published.

How may are using this already?

If you're using it how do you integrate with CSE?

I believe that Aria markup looks like this:

Code: Select all

<span tabindex="0" role="checkbox" aria-checked="true" onkeydown="return checkBoxEvent(event);" onclick="return checkBoxEvent(event);">Any checkbox label</span>
I don't know the full range of extra attributes involved.
