Detailed support results by expectation

Expectation for the figcaption element: convey an appropriate role

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

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • 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.

This expectation is from the figcaption element feature.

Expectation for the figcaption element: allow navigating content

Rationale: A user needs to be able to navigate the content

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • A screen reader might allow reading-mode navigation, such as reading line-by-line.

Grading method: All of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

This expectation is from the figcaption element feature.

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

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

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • 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.

This expectation is from the figcaption element feature.

Expectation for the figure element: convey an appropriate role

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 these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • 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.

This expectation is from the figure element feature.

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

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

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

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • 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.

This expectation is from the figure element feature.
