ARIA Labels for Input Elements

Business Background

ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) accessibility refers to a set of specifications developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to improve the accessibility of web content, especially dynamic content and user interface components.

Use ARIA Labels when text that labels elements are not visible. ARIA Labels will place descriptive text on an object. This markup is added to the HTML to communicate to users.
