Yes, it is a violation of SC 1.3.1.

Hi,

If a required field symbol is on screen, immediately to the left of a form
field, but outside the label tag, so that a screen reader user has to exit
Form mode to see it, does that violate that a required field must be
programmibly determined?



Thanks.



Jim
