      Description

      When form elements are required the input/label does not indicate this to screen readers.

       

      “The exclamation mark inside a red circle symbols are not read at all by the screen reader.”

       

      Where form elements are required using the required attribute is recommended.

       

      For non standard html elements (e.g. rich text editors) providing information as part of the label would be helpful for screen readers.
