Quick Tip: ARIA Design Patterns
ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) defines a way to make complex interactive widgets accessible. When building an ARIA-enhanced widget (such as a slider or complex menu), it is vital that the keyboard interaction with that element follow prescribed guidelines so the user knows how to interact with it. The ARIA Specification outlines interaction design patterns for all ARIA elements.
