Element ARIA Attributes Are Valid And Not Misspelled Or Non-Existent


Misspelled or nonexistent ARIA attributes may be preventing the screen reader from properly understanding the current state of a widget. This could make the page unusable to users who rely on screen readers.

See Introduction to ARIA for more information.


Below the audit, Lighthouse displays something like 1 element fails this test. The number varies depending on how many elements are failing. Click this label to expand the list. You can find each element in your DOM by running the $(), $$(), and $x() functions from the Chrome DevTools Console.

To find each listed element's invalid attribute names:

  1. Note the role and aria-* attributes of the element.

  2. Go to Definition of Roles.

  3. Go to the page for this element's role.

  4. Check the actual attributes on the element against the supported attributes, as listed in Required States and Properties and Supported States and Properties.
