1 · Login, Signup and Other Forms
This covers all aspects of registering with a service or site, then returning to sign-in and finally to work with forms. Those who use screen readers and keyboard access need to be able to reach the forms and exit to the rest of the site. Good labelling enables users to understand the type of content required. Keyboard focus needs to be managed appropriately within form fields, particularly if the form appears in a modal window. Users should be informed of required fields and able to perceive error alerts if form submission fails. Form should also work effectively when using alternative input devices, including touch screens.
