This check can be used to create a list of pages that have an textarea element. DubBot natively screens to verify that the field is properly labeled as recommended per WCAG.
This flag can be used to further curate a list to manually review that the position of the label is close to the actual input field. It is acceptable to not display the label when the purpose of the field is obvious to visitors based on the surrounding context. If the purpose of the field is not obvious, it is important to ensure that the label is positioned close to the field.
How to set it up:
- Set rule to “Flag pages that contains"
- Set Search by to: XPath
Note: this check does not indicate that there is something necessarily wrong with the textarea field. This check should just be used to create a list of pages for reviewing that the display of the textarea field and label provides an intuitive experience for users interacting with the form field.
