    Description

      The date element has label, but the for value is pointing nowhere. The problem is there are three input elements and only one label. JAWS is only reading numbers/months nothing else now, user can guess the meaning only from the help icon when tabbing forward. Also when user clicks the label, nothing is selected.

      Solution:
      1/ add hidden labels
      2/ fieldset legend ?
      3/ non-standard and not-recommended alt attribute ?? (to do for me: find out if it works in JAWS)

      any other idea?
