The WAI-WAI-ARIA Primer introduces developers to the use of WAI-ARIA for addressing the accessibility of dynamic Web content for people with disabilities. This primer explains the accessibility problems posed by hybrid technologies such as Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language (DHTML) and Asynchronous Java and XML (Ajax). It introduces the technologies to map controls, Ajax live regions, and events to accessibility application programming interfaces (APIs), including custom controls used for Rich Internet Applications. The primer also describes new navigation techniques to mark common Web elements with roles such as menus, primary content, secondary content, banner information and other types of Web structures. These new technologies can be used to improve the accessibility and usability of Web resources by people with disabilities, without extensive modification to existing libraries of Web resources. This document is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.
