<textarea> with "disabled" attribute

Return to main list

This is a test case designed to determine how the disabled attribute, applied to the <textarea> element, is announced by various screen readers.

Disabled attributes cannot receive focus, so the only way to test how these attributes are announced is via:

Example

Code

<div>
  <label for="comment">Add a comment</label>
  <textarea id="comment" disabled></textarea>
</div>
