(n) When electronic forms are designed to be completed
on-line, 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.
Ensure that the user may interact with the form with a preferred
input (or output) device, such as a mouse, keyboard, voice or head
wand. If a form control can only be activated with a mouse or other
pointing device, someone who is using the page without sight, with
voice input, or with only a keyboard will not be able to use the form.
Provide a phone number the Web visitor can call to verbally
supply the requested information. An e-mail address should also
Preface each form element with a descriptive name followed
by a colon. The Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) software
calls each form element by the word prior to and on the same
line as the form element.
