Accessibility Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator integrates axe-core version 4.4, into an automated web site scanner.

IDs used in ARIA and labels must be unique

The value assigned to an id attribute used in ARIA or in form labels must be unique to prevent the second instance from being overlooked by assistive technology. Put another way; ID values used in ARIA and in labels may not be used more than once in the same document to differentiate each element from another.

Duplicate IDs are common validation errors that may break the accessibility of labels, e.g., ARIA elements, form fields, table header cells.

Unique ID's differentiate each element from another and prevent invalid markup, wherein only the first instance gets acted upon by client-side scripting, or where assistive technologies typically only reference the first one accurately.
