Description

A short summary of the principle ideas, concepts and conclusions of the work, or of a section or excerpt within it.

Examples

Example 1 — Abstract paragraph within an article
<article aria-labelledby="hd">
   <h2 id="hd">Deoxyribonucleic Acid Self-Replication</h2>
   <p role="doc-abstract">The cause of self-replicating DNA…</p>
   …
</section>
Example 2 — Multi-paragraph abstract
<div role="doc-abstract">
   <p>This paper examines the effects of …</p>
   …
</div>

Relation to ARIA

doc-abstract inherits its semantics from the a section role (i.e., it represents a container of related content, but is not a landmark).

Usage

doc-abstract is typically used on div elements when it consists of more than one paragraph, but can be used on a p tag when the abstract is a single paragraph.
