Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 F68 and Section 508 1194.22 (n)
This form control has no LABEL and no programmatically determined name.
A programmatically determined name allows screen readers to tell the user what the control does. To add a name do one of the following:
- Use a LABEL element with the FOR attribute set to the ID of the form control
- Wrap a LABEL element around the form control
- Add a TITLE attribute
- Add an ARIA-LABELLEDBY attribute (not supported in all screen readers)
- Add an ARIA-LABEL attribute (not supported in all screen readers)
