Expectation for the aria-sort attribute: convey the 'ascending' value - applied to the th element

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

This expectation is from the aria-sort attribute feature.

Rationale:

Screen reader users need to be aware that the data associated with the header is currently sorted in ascending order.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • Screen readers will convey the 'ascending' value as something like "sorted ascending" or "sort up" when navigating to the header or one of its cells.

Grading method:

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

Expectation for the aria-sort attribute: convey the 'descending' value - applied to the th element

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

This expectation is from the aria-sort attribute feature.

Rationale:

Screen reader users need to be aware that the data associated with the header is currently sorted in descending order.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • Screen readers will convey the 'descending' value as something like "sorted descending" or "sort down" when navigating to the header or one of its cells.

Grading method:

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

Expectation for the aria-sort attribute: convey the 'none' value either by omitting any sort information or by indicating that the header is unsorted but sortable - applied to the th element

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

This expectation is from the aria-sort attribute feature.

Rationale:

Screen reader users need to be aware that the data associated with the header is not currently sorted. They may also benefit from knowing that the data is sortable.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • Screen readers will convey the 'none' value by omitting any sort announcements when navigating to the header or one of its cells.

Grading method:

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

Expectation for the aria-sort attribute: convey the 'none' value by indicating that the header is unsorted but sortable - applied to the th element

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

This expectation is from the aria-sort attribute feature.

Rationale:

Developers may use the 'none' value to indicate to screen reader users that a header is sortable but currently unsorted. However, this behavior is not broadly adopted across screen readers and may diverge from the normative ARIA spec.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: SHOULD
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • Screen readers may convey the 'none' value by indicating that the header is sortable but omitting a current sort direction.

Grading method:

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

Notes:

For more information, see #133

Expectation for the aria-sort attribute: convey the 'other' value - applied to the th element

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

This expectation is from the aria-sort attribute feature.

Rationale:

Screen reader users need to be aware that the data associated with the header is currently sorted in something other than ascending or descending order.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • Screen readers will convey the 'other' value as something like "sorted" or "sorted other" when navigating to the header or one of its cells.

Grading method:

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