Description chris fleizach 2013-03-05 09:00:52 PST
IndieUI is a W3C spec that is aimed at providing a way to control web elements that is independent of the primary input means (ie. don't assume a mouse is the only way a user will interact with a computer)

Indie UI: Events 1.0, an abstraction between physical, device-specific user interaction events and inferred user intent such as scrolling or changing values. This provides an intermediate layer between device- and modality-specific user interaction events, and the basic user interface functionality used by web applications. IndieUI: Events focuses on granular user interface interactions such as scrolling the view, canceling an action, changing the value of a user input widget, selecting a range, placing focus on an object, etc. Implementing platforms will combine modality-specific user input, user idiosyncratic heuristics to determine the specific corresponding Indie UI event, and send that to the web application in addition to the modality-specific input such as mouse or keyboard events, should applications wish to process it.
