Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 1 12.3


All radio button groups should be contained in a FIELDSET element.


When JAWS reads a page in Forms Mode it skips all markup other than form fields, labels and legends. Generally each radio button label is the answer to a question (e.g. Yes/No, Male/Female), so FIELDSET and LEGEND elements are needed to say what the question is.
