Questions & Answers

In web accessibility, which text is part of the visible label?

I’ve built form fields that are part of a sentence — I basically want the user to fill in the blanks. However, that also means there is a lot of text near the form fields. Which text counts as the visible label?

  • form fields
  • forms
  • visible labels

Are there multiple ways to build an accessible widget?

I'm trying to build a widget that follows an example in the W3C ARIA Authoring Practices Guide, but I can't quite match it because of the way my site is built. Can my widget still be accessible?

  • aria
  • custom widgets
