Making Forms Accessible

Forms contain a variety of input elements, like menus, radio buttons, and checkboxes, that can create accessibility problems. A screen reader, for example, would have to tell the user “checkbox1, checkbox2, checkbox3” if a form wasn’t properly labeled, and that wouldn’t be much help to the user at all.

Dreamweaver’s accessibility controls make it easy to do the following: add labels attached to form elements; define access keys and tab order to allow for easier keyboard navigation between form elements; and define tab order between form elements. Section 508 standards specify that labels are required. Access keys and tab index settings are optional.
