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, it might be helpful to jump directly to the reference or have it conveyed.

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.
