This is a kind of oversight from, at that time all
other ARIA attributes from the IDL
( were shipped, but this one
was missing.

This is a small change that will also include the role attribute as one
more of the reflection ARIA properties available.


This should have shipped in M81
together with the rest of attributes, by for some reason this wasn't
done (probably because it was originally developed under a different
runtime flag).

**Interoperability and Compatibility**

This is just one more property that should had shipped originally.

This has been shipped in Safari
( long time ago.

And there's an implementation in Firefox behind a flag.

**Gecko**: Under consideration
( Mozilla
position is still under consideration, but Firefox has an implementation
behind a runtime flag
( Last comment
from Anne on the bug, points to some spec issues but those are generic
issues for the whole feature (not particular issues with "role" property

**WebKit**: Shipped/Shipping


This will work the same than the rest of properties already shipped.

**Is this feature fully tested by web-platform-tests?**


**Tracking bug**
