Hello webkit-dev,

I’m starting to work on implementing the Accessibility Object Model. This effort aims to create a JavaScript API to allow developers to modify (and eventually explore) the accessibility tree for an HTML page.

I’m going to implement the first two phases:
1. Modify the semantic properties of the accessibility node associated with a particular DOM node.
    This phase will explain and augment the existing capabilities of ARIA <https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-1.1/>.
2. Accessible actions support.
    Directly respond to events (or actions) from assistive technology.
