When electronic forms are designed to be completed online, the form shall allow people using assistive technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.
Make certain you label form elements carefully, placing the text labels close to the controls. Use the label element to programmatically associate prompts with input elements when the on-screen prompting text is adequate. Use the title attribute on the input control when the prompting text is inadequate or dispersed.
