Standards information

Remarks

Used in Roles
No role required.

 

This property defines element relationships and associations that cannot be readily determined from the document structure.

The aria-describedby property is intended to provide additional information which some users might need, and supplements the basic information provided by label.

If more than one id property is specified, all elements are combined together to create a single description.

Note  For cross-browser compatibility, always use the WAI-ARIA attribute syntax to access and modify ARIA properties, for example object.setAttribute("aria-valuenow", newValue).
