Description Joanmarie Diggs (irc: joanie) 2010-03-19 08:12:40 PDT
Currently we ignore any element which does not itself contain content. Thus given:

  <div class="note" title="Note">
    <div class="inner">
      <div class="contents">
        <p class="p">Note contents</p>

We'd expose:

  -> Document Frame
     -> Paragraph (text: Note contents)

If the content provider has specified a title attribute, we should include that element in the hierarchy. When we do so, the title attribute should automatically become exposed as the accessible description, i.e.:

  -> Document Frame
     -> Section (description: Note)
       -> Paragraph (text: Note contents)

Chris: What's the story on the Mac? Do VoiceOver users have a need for this as well, or should it be limited to Gtk?
Comment 2 chris fleizach 2010-03-19 09:25:04 PDT
thats reasonable i think. on the mac, that will be exposed as an AXGroup, which is ok
