Standards information


Used in Roles
No role required.


This property defines element relationships and associations that cannot be readily determined from the document structure.

When the aria-flowto property contains a single id property, the assistive technology should resume reading at the targeted element. However, when the aria-flowto property contains multiple id properties, the assistive technology should give users the option of navigating to any targeted element.

Note  For cross-browser compatibility, always use the WAI-ARIA attribute syntax to access and modify ARIA properties, for example object.setAttribute("aria-valuenow", newValue).
