Proper use of labels with the elements above will benefit:

  • Screen reader users (will read out loud the label, when the user is focused on the element)
  • Users who have difficulty clicking on very small regions (such as checkboxes) - because when a user clicks the text within the <label> element, it toggles the input (this increases the hit area). 

Tips and 笔记

Tip: The for attribute of <label> must be equal to the id attribute of the related element to bind them together. A label can also be bound to an element by placing the element inside the <label> element.
