Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 2.4.6

Description

Form field labels should be unique on a page, or enclosed in a FIELDSET with a LEGEND that makes the label unique.

Help

When a form contains items with the same label, screen reader users find it difficult to tell them apart. Adding a fieldset with a legend differentiates the controls, because the legend text is announced along with the label text. For example: <legend> Gift wrapped: </legend> <label> Yes </label> <label> No </label>
<legend> Express delivery: </legend> <label> Yes </label> <label> No </label>
