Thank you for your feedback David.

It is difficult to fit in all the technical details in a short video 
that is also intended for non-technical people.

The section "What needs to happen for this to work?" below the video (on 
the page where this video is embedded) provides clarification:

[[
... Provide labels for controls, which enlarges the activation area in 
many browsers because the label for checkboxes and option buttons is 
also clickable.
]]

This section is intended for developers to understand "what do I need to 
do". We often see labels being left out of website controls.

Let us know if you have further comments, specifically on the text of 
these pages, ideally through one of the channels described in Katie's 
initial email included further below.

Many thanks,
   Shadi
