Adding WAI-ARIA roles to a dynamic layout
Labeling dynamic layouts with their individual WAI-ARIA (Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications) role allows assistive technologies, such as screen readers, to receive information about the dynamic layout function in the user interface.
The WAI-ARIA role of a dynamic container establishes what function the layout performs in the user interface. For example, a dynamic layout that contains a menu might be assigned the WAI-ARIA Navigation role. A dynamic layout can also be assigned the role of main content, much like a dynamic container or the center panel of a screen layout.
When you create an accessible application, make sure that you label dynamic layouts with the correct WAI-ARIA role.
