Then load the module in your application by adding it as a dependent module:

angular.module('app', ['ngAria']);

With that you're ready to get started!

The ngAria module provides support for common ARIA attributes that convey state or semantic information about the application for users of assistive technologies, such as screen readers.


For ngAria to do its magic, simply include the module ngAria as a dependency. The following directives are supported: ngModel, ngChecked, ngReadonly, ngRequired, ngValue, ngDisabled, ngShow, ngHide, ngClick, ngDblClick, and ngMessages.

Below is a more detailed breakdown of the attributes handled by ngAria:

Directive Supported Attributes
ngModel aria-checked, aria-valuemin, aria-valuemax, aria-valuenow, aria-invalid, aria-required, input roles
ngDisabled aria-disabled
ngRequired aria-required
ngChecked aria-checked
ngReadonly aria-readonly
ngValue aria-checked
ngShow aria-hidden
ngHide aria-hidden
