DRES website
  • http://dres-csuggs.dev.ojctech.com/
  • JG: aria-required attribute is being used, the title seems to be being used as a tool tip for sighted users
  • MR: I get the label with “edit required”
  • MS: Is screen reader support for required may not be stable enough to get the aria-required
  • MR: There are some modes the required does not come out, only one more right now
  • MS: What screen readers do we want to support
  • MS: May want need to use an older technique, this is no mans land, xhtml 1.0 does not natively support aria
  • JG: I think we should use both aria-required and an accessible labeling technique
  • JG: We can continue this discussion next week.
