Expectation for the figcaption element: convey its role

This expectation is from the figcaption element feature.

Rationale:

Screen reader users might need to differentiate between figure content and figcaption content

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • A screen reader might convey the role as something like "figcapion" or "caption"

Grading method:

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

Expectation for the figcaption element: convey the boundaries of the element

This expectation is from the figcaption element feature.

Rationale:

Screen reader users might need to differentiate between figure content, figcaption content, and other content

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • A screen reader might announce the role of the element when entering and say something like "leaving" when exiting.
  • A screen reader might not explicitly announce entering and existing the element, but instead imply that the is in the containing object by conveying the roles of required children (options in a listbox for example).
  • A screen reader might announce position in set information such as "1 of 6".
  • A screen reader might not convey boundaries if the content fits on a single line

Grading method:

All of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

Expectation for the figure element: convey its name

This expectation is from the figure element feature.

Rationale:

A screen reader user needs to know what to enter.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • A screen reader might source the name from the "figcapion", "aria-label" attribute, "aria-labelledby" attribute, or "title" attribute

Grading method:

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

Expectation for the figure element: convey its role

This expectation is from the figure element feature.

Rationale:

A screen reader user needs to know how they can interact with the element. Voice control software might use the role to help users activate controls that do not have a visible name.

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • A screen reader might convey the role as something like "figure"

Grading method:

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

Expectation for the figure element: convey the boundaries of the element

This expectation is from the figure element feature.

Rationale:

A user needs to know when they enter and exit an element

Strength of this expectation for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples:

  • A screen reader might announce the role of the element when entering and say something like "leaving" when exiting.
  • A screen reader might not explicitly announce entering and existing the element, but instead imply that the is in the containing object by conveying the roles of required children (options in a listbox for example).
  • A screen reader might announce position in set information such as "1 of 6".
  • A screen reader might not convey boundaries if the content fits on a single line

Grading method:

All of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.
