Description Joanmarie Diggs (irc: joanie) 2020-04-07 09:35:11 PDT
In ARIA, an alertdialog is a type of dialog; an alert is not a type of dialog but rather a live region.
In ATK an alert is a type of dialog which should be used for things like warning dialogs. Thus this platform role is well suited for the ARIA alertdialog role, but ill suited for the ARIA alert role.

As a result of the above, the Core-AAM specification has been updated:

    * alertdialog: ATK_ROLE_ALERT rather than ATK_ROLE_DIALOG
See https://w3c.github.io/core-aam/#mapping_role_table
