Speaking of API mappings…

It would be wonderful if the really nifty form elements in DOCX could be picked up. They seem like they should provide much better accessibility support for labels, instructions, etc., but JAWS (at least) does not pick up any of that information. This leaves us with the guidance to continue using the “legacy” form controls, which aren’t that great.
