F68 states that it is applicable to "HTML and XHTML controls that use
visible labels"
Which would seemingly exclude scope of aria-label, title etc. for this
failure.
This failure applies in its current form to 1.3.1
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/NOTE-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20140916/content-structure-separation-programmatic.html>
(among others). Is it correct to say that 1.3.1 only requires that a
visible label be programmatically determined, whereas a control with no
visible label whatsoever would not fail 1.3.1 (because there is no
relationship to convey and users without any accessibility needs are at a
similar disadvantage), and that is why ARIA-14 is not a sufficient
technique for 1.3.1 whereas ARIA-16 is
However, regarding 4.1.2
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/NOTE-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20140916/ensure-compat-rsv.html>
(name role value) a control without any label or title or aria attribute
would fail, and so ARIA-14 is a technique for 4.1.2.
Is all of the above correct?
Thank you in advance for your feedback
