ARIA is Spackle, Not Rebar | CSS-Tricks
HTML is the rebar-reinforced concrete of the web. To stretch the metaphor, CSS is the interior and exterior decoration, and JavaScript is the wiring and plumbing.

Every tag in HTML has what is known as native semantics. The act of writing an HTML element programmatically communicates to the browser what that tag represents. Writing a button tag explicitly tells the browser, "This is a button. It does buttony things."

The reason this is so important is that assistive technology hooks into native semantics and uses it to create an interface for navigation. A page not described semantically is a lot like a building without rooms or windows: People navigating via a screen reader have to wander around aimlessly in the dark and hope they stumble onto what they need.

ARIA stands for Accessible Rich Internet Applications and is a relatively new specification developed to help assistive technology better communicate with dynamic, JavaScript-controlled content. It is intended to supplement existing semantic attributes by providing enhanced interactivity and context to screen readers and other assistive technology.

Page Regions in HTML5 Using WAI-ARIA

Most current web browsers support the above HTML5 elements and convey the information to assistive technology through the accessibility APIs. However, to maximize compatibility with web browsers and assistive technologies that support WAI-ARIA but do not yet support HTML5, it is currently advisable to use both the HTML5 elements and the corresponding WAI-ARIA roles.

Unbuttoning Buttons
Regardless of how one might feel about using CSS to disguise an HTML element as another, it can’t be denied that it’s a common, and sometimes necessary, practice in modern web development. It’s often better to just use the HTML element you need, rather than modifying an element to look, act, and convey the same semantics as another. However, sometimes the necessary HTML element isn’t malleable enough for the task at hand. For instance, let’s talk about styling (or rather unstyling) the button element.
