Detailed support results by expectation

Expectation for the aria-details attribute: allow the user to jump back to the referencing element - applied to the img element

This expectation is applied to the img element. Expectations and results might differ when the the feature is applied to different roles.

This expectation is from the aria-details attribute feature.

Rationale:

If the details are not adjacent to the element with aria-details, they might find it helpful to jump back so that they can continue reading the page.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: SHOULD
  • Voice Control: NA

Grading method:

Just one of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.
