An element whose implicit native role semantics will not be mapped to the accessibility API.
Description

New in ARIA 1.1

An element whose implicit native role semantics will not be mapped to the accessibility API. See synonym presentation.

Note: Note regarding the ARIA 1.1 none role.§

In ARIA 1.1, the working group introduced none as a synonym to the presentation role, due to author confusion surrounding the intended meaning of the word "presentation" or "presentational." Many individuals erroneously consider role="presentation" to be synonymous with aria-hidden="true", and we believe role="none" conveys the actual meaning more unambiguously.

Until implementations include sufficient support for role="none", web authors are advised to use the presentation role alone role="presentation" or redundantly as a fallback to the none role role="none presentation".
