Hi Nancy, this sounds like a form usability question first and foremost. Could you give us more context?

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.
