Twitter Writes a Post about role=presentation

There is an ARIA role called “presentation” in the WAI ARIA spec. With Twitter’s help, Denis Boudreau wrote this post about it.

This is how it started:

Then @jsutt took up the idea with this:

Denis Boudreau to the rescue!

 

 

 

As you see, this ARIA role has specific and limited use. I wasn’t sure where a front end developer who was only working with semantic HTML would even consider using it.

 

Oh, at last the light dawns. This is what developers building apps sometimes need to do. Even at that, go back to point one about only using it when you really know what you’re doing and are absolutely sure you want to strip an element of its semantics.

Denis draws us to a sensible conclusion.
