Accessibility Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator integrates axe-core version 4.2, which currently checks 95 accessibility rules, into an automated web site scanner.

50,000 Accessibility and HTML checks per month. Fully automated.

Let our automated scanner check your large sites using Axe Core and W3C Validator.

Form <input> elements should have a visible label

Form <input> elements may be given a title using the title or aria-describedby attributes (but not both). These attributes are used to provide additional information such as a hint.

The title and aria-describedby attributes are used to provide additional information such as a hint. Hints are exposed to accessibility APIs differently than labels and as such, this can cause problems with assistive technologies.

When form inputs such as text entry fields, radio buttons, check boxes, and select menus contain no labels other than title and aria-describedby attribute values, screen readers interpret the content as advisory information only. Labels created by the title and aria-describedby values are not sufficient to create a true label that can be determined programmatically from the code to convey the purpose of the input form element.
