Hi Maciej,

Thanks very much for providing this information. I have a brief comment about your accessibility section below:

This wording "Sometimes ARIA is mentioned in the context of accessibility - this is an interesting technology for future web apps" doesn't seem quite right to me. ARIA enabled browsers such as Firefox provide access to ARIA enabled DHTML applications today. Opera and IE8 are adding support today. Google is putting ARIA into its web applications.

So far as I know, there isn't any major web app yet that is already using ARIA. I would appreciate correction on this front if I have missed anything.

Sure. I'm not sure what classifies as a major web app, but how about google reader?

I did find Google Reader in the FAQ just now, but it took me a while to find the ARIA-enhanced version, since the main version does not have ARIA markup and just has an invisible link. I'm looking right now for actual signs of ARIA markup in the axs version using the live DOM view of the Safari web inspector, I can't seem to find any elements with aria-* attributes on them. Can anyone help me figure out where to look?

You can see aria- markup in the html view of Firebug on FF. Here's a screenshot:

(I squished the window to waste less bits)

In this example the body has the aria-activedescendent specified. I
imagine Google might be injecting the aria markup (via AxsJax) so I'm no
sure what to expect on Safari. I tried using Drosera on Webkit but
didn't see the markup there either. Maybe Charles or T.V. will chime in :)


(In-the-wild use of ARIA is important for us for prioritization, and eventually testing, which is why I'd like to know about it.)
