Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) define as maneiras para tornar o conteĆŗdo da Web e aplicaƧƵes da Web (especialmente aqueles desenvolvidos com Ajax e JavaScript) mais acessĆ­veis para as pessoas com deficiĆŖncia. Por exemplo, ARIA permite marcos de navegaĆ§Ć£o acessĆ­veis, widgets de JavaScript, dicas de formulĆ”rio e mensagens de erro, atualizaƧƵes de conteĆŗdo live e muito mais.

ARIA Ć© um conjunto de atributos de acessibilidade especiais que podem ser adicionados a qualquer marcaĆ§Ć£o, mas Ć© especialmente adequado para HTML. . O atributo role define que tipo geral de objeto Ć© (tais como um artigo, alerta, ou cursor). Os atributos ARIA adicionais fornecem outras propriedades Ćŗteis, tais como uma descriĆ§Ć£o para um formulĆ”rio ou o valor atual de uma barra de progresso.

ARIA Ć© implementado na maioria dos navegadores populares e leitores de ecrĆ£. No entanto, as implementaƧƵes variam e as tecnologias mais antigas nĆ£o o suportam bem (se for o caso). Utilize ARIA 'seguro' que se degrada graciosamente, ou peƧa aos utilizadores que atualizem para a nova tecnologia.

Nota: por favor, contribua e melhore ARIA para a prĆ³xima pessoa! NĆ£o tem tempo? Envie as sugestƵes para a lista de endereƧos de acessibilidade da Mozilla, ou canal IRC #accessibility.
