Assuming you mean text input fields, i.e. input type=text, it seems that
you cannot specify in ARIA that at least one of them needs to be
nonempty. You cannot do that with HTML attributes either. You can just
declare a field required. And you should not do that here of course.

So you can just say, in text, before the fields, that at least one them
needs to be filled out. You can additionally have JavaScript code that
checks that this condition is met when the form is to be submitted.
