Have you looked at examples offered here:


And also the webaim site has great information:

Seems like some surveys I've taken recently had something similar to what you're looking for but I don't have one handy at the moment.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] - [WebAIM] Checkbox with text box to specify

CAUTION: This email came from a non-OC system or external source. Beware of phishing and social engineering!

In a form, I have a choice of 2 checkboxes. The second one is labeled "Other, specify," and there is a text box next to it. I'm having trouble finding an example online to make this accessible. Is there a way to indicate that the text box is related to the checkbox? Thank you.
