Hi Paul and Siri--
Why is the example considered an implicit label?

 I would say that’s outdated information. I don’t know of any screen readers that don’t support wrapped labels. 
Maybe there’s a bug with Dragon but it should be fixed if so.

To be more clear: The HTML and XHTML specifications allow both implicit and explicit labels. However, some assistive technologies do not correctly handle implicit labels (for example, <label>First name <input type="text" name="firstname"></label>).Is that still true or is it outdated information? _____________________________________________

Subject: Implicit labels  Is implicit labelling is supported by all screen readers in all browsers? Do we have to use for and id along with the implicit labels to make sure that the element tied to label is read by all AT users? ThanksSiri
