HTML ARIA

by John Vincent

Posted on

ARIA is a set of special accessibility attributes which can be added to any markup, but is especially suited to HTML. The role attribute defines what the general type of object is (such as an article, alert, or slider). Additional ARIA attributes provide other useful properties, such as a description for a form or the current value of a progress bar.

ARIA is implemented in most popular browsers and screen readers. However, implementations vary and older technologies don't support it well (if at all). Use either "safe" ARIA that degrades gracefully, or ask users to upgrade to newer technology.

HTML Microdata

by John Vincent

Posted on

Search engines, web crawlers, and browsers can extract and process Microdata from a web page and use it to provide a richer browsing experience for users.

Search engines benefit greatly from direct access to this structured data because it allows them to understand the information on web pages and provide more relevant results to users.

Microdata uses a supporting vocabulary to describe an item and name-value pairs to assign values to its properties.

Microdata is an attempt to provide a simpler way of annotating HTML elements with machine-readable tags than the similar approaches of using RDFa and microformats.
