October accessibility focus: Forms

Forms are the main way our users communicate with us. They use forms to complete purchases, sign up for newsletters, RSVP to events, and submit contact forms. Forms are critical in today’s virtual environment.

Inaccessible forms mean some of your users could have a frustrating experience with your organization, or they aren’t able to interact with your form at all.

In fact, the WebAIM million report found over 1.7 million form fields aren’t properly labeled.

The resources below will help you know how to make accessible forms so all users can have a better experience with your forms.
