Re: Label vs ALT tag on form elements

For section 508 N Labels are required if It is anything except for
- Text / form element with nothing in between the preceding text and element

example

Name [ field ] [submit]

According to the access board you do not need an alternative! amazing I know but anything besides this does require the label for form handling.

So for form handling yes please use labels and it is what is recommended by the tool documentation "AccVerify"


Does this help?
