ARIA 1.0 moves to Candidate Recommendation

ARIA 1.0, a W3C technical specification for making dynamic, interactive web content accessible to people with disabilities, has progressed to Candidate Recommendation status. This means that the W3C judges the specification to be stable enough to invite implementation. ARIA stands for "Accessible Rich Internet Applications" and it defines a way to make Web content and Web applications more accessible to people with disabilities. It especially helps with dynamic content and advanced user interface controls developed with Ajax, HTML, JavaScript, and related technologies. Through the AEGIS Project, the IDRC participates in the development of the ARIA 1.0 specification and develops technologies that implement ARIA, such as the Fluid Infusion component set.
