4.1.2 Name, Role, Value Level A

Description

For all user interface components (including but not limited to: form elements, links and components generated by scripts), the name and role can be programmatically determined; states, properties, and values that can be set by the user can be programmatically set; and notification of changes to these items is available to user agents, including assistive technologies.

*This success criterion is primarily for Web authors who develop or script their own user interface components. For example, standard HTML controls already meet this success criterion when used according to specification.

What does “accessibility node not exposed” mean?

I was checking to make sure an element on my page has an accessible name in Chrome's Developer Tools and under the Computed Properties section of the Accessibility panel, it says "Accessibility node note exposed. Element not interesting for accessibility." What does that mean?

  • accessibility node
  • hidden content
