Tree widgets have an expanded state according to the ARIA spec:

Dijit's tree widget does not support this state. The tree's nodes (dijit._TreeNode) do support aria-expanded (correctly, as per the spec).

The tree does support the aria role:

var tree = dijit.byId('treeId');
dijit.getWaiRole(tree.domNode) == "tree";    // evals to true

Given that the role is stored on the tree's domNode, then I suggest putting aria-expanded on that element as well.

How does one determine if a tree is expanded or collapsed? Trees have a rootNode. If the root is expanded, then so it the tree, and vice versa:

var rootState = dijit.getWaiState(tree.rootNode.labelNode, 'expanded');
dijit.setWaiState(tree.domNode, 'expanded', rootState);

And, whenever the root's expanded state is updated, so to is the tree's.

The following patch, "7998.patch", adds the necessary mods to dijit._TreeNode in Tree.js. Whenever the tree root node's aria-expanded state is updated, likewise the tree dom node's aria-expanded state.
