Detailed support results by expectation

Expectation for the input[type="email"] element: convey an appropriate name

Rationale: A screen reader user needs to know what to enter.

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: MUST

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • A screen reader will announce the name (label).
  • Voice control software will let the user say something like "click <name>" to activate the control.

Grading method: Just one of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

This expectation is from the input[type="email"] element feature.

Expectation for the input[type="email"] element: convey an appropriate role

Rationale: A screen reader user needs to know how they can interact with the element. Voice control software might use the role to help users activate controls that do not have a visible name.

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: MUST

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • A screen reader might be announce the role as "text input", "edit", "edit text", "email" etc. Actually announcing "email" is not required.
  • Voice control software will let the user say something like "click text box" to focus a the input or flag the role with a number.

Grading method: Just one of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

This expectation is from the input[type="email"] element feature.

Expectation for the input[type="email"] element: convey changes in value

Rationale: The user needs to know that the value was successfully changed.

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: MUST
  • Voice Control: NA

Examples of assistive technologies support this expectation:

  • When the user enter texts, the screen reader will announce it back to them.

Grading method: All of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

This expectation is from the input[type="email"] element feature.

Expectation for the input[type="email"] element: provide shortcuts to jump to this role

Rationale: Screen reader users might want to quickly navigate to elements of this type.

Strength of these expectations for different types of assistive technologies:

  • Screen Readers: SHOULD
  • Voice Control: NA

Grading method: Just one of the listed commands must pass for the expectation to pass.

This expectation is from the input[type="email"] element feature.
