Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.0 is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendation that extends the WAI-ARIA specification to define a set of roles aimed at helping users of assistive technologies navigate through long-form documents.

Quoting the recommendation, enabling users of assistive technologies to find their way through Web content requires embedding semantic metadata about Web document structural divisions: this is particularly important for long-form documents (such as books, magazines, and educational, professional and scientific publications) and goes along with embedding semantic metadata about Web-application widgets and behaviors for assistive technologies.
