Property values

Type: DOMString

Standards information


Used in Roles


You should only set the aria-valuetext attribute when the value of a slider or progress bar cannot be accurately represented as a number.

For example, a slider might display values of small, medium, and large. In this case, the values of aria-valuenow could range from 1 through 3 to indicate the position of the slider, and the aria-valuetext could contain the equivalent size value to present to the user.

If the aria-valuetext attribute is absent, the assistive technologies will rely solely on the aria-valuenow attribute for the current value.
