iframe and frame elements must have title attributes.


Add a TITLE attribute to each FRAME and IFRAME element (e.g. TITLE=«Main Content»). Without a TITLE some screen readers read out the FRAME filename, which is usually meaningless.

Note: Section 508 (2000) checkpoints (a) through (k) are equivalent to WCAG 1.0 level A checkpoints. Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level AA checkpoints.
