As part of the techniques to support the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2, the WCAG Working Group are considering techniques for when a visible label isn't required on screen. Becky Gibson, a web accessibility architect for IBM, has started the ball rolling with four of the current techniques in popular use, along with the pros and cons for each. The techniques under consideration are; hide the label with CSS using display: none, hide the label with CSS by moving it off the visual display. using a transparent single pixel image, and using the title attribute on the form control.
