Web Accessibility

(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.

WSU Information
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.
  1. Use "explicit labels" as outlined in the 508 Standards Information for Standard (n).

  2. Provide a phone number the Web visitor can call to verbally supply the requested information. An e-mail address should also be included.

  3. 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.
