<fieldset> with "disabled" attribute

Return to main list

This is a test case designed to determine how the disabled attribute, applied to the <fieldset> 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

Do you like boats?

Code

<fieldset disabled>
  <legend>Do you like boats?</legend>
  <div>
    <input type="radio" id="boats-y" name="boats">
    <label for="boats-y">Yes</label>
  </div>
  <div>
    <input type="radio" id="boats-n" name="boats">
    <label for="boats-n">No</label>
  </div>
</fieldset>
