A group of radio buttons.

A radiogroup (role) is assigned to the container that holds a similar type of radio buttons. Only one radio button in the group can be checked at a time.

Authors should enforce that only one radio button in a group can be checked at the same time. When one item in the group is checked (aria-checked="true"), the previously checked item becomes unchecked (aria-checked="false").
