Frame has no accessible name Accessibility Checkpoint
frame elements must have a
title attribute or ARIA label to each
frame element (e.g.
title='Main Content'). Without a title some screen readers read out the frame filename, which is usually meaningless.
Note: Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level A and level AA checkpoints.
