Best Practice 3.5 – Provide input assistance such as proper labels or instructions for user input (Baseline level)


Ensure that all input components including labels, tabs, buttons and text fields must have a meaningful label or instruction so that it can be read by screen readers.

 

Before Rectification
A sample mobile application page containing a blank date input field.
There is no input hint on what is the required date format.
After Rectification
A sample mobile application page containing a date input field with instruction on the required date format.
By adding input hint or instruction to the field, user can know what the mobile application component is about and what to enter.
