The disabled state of a button is not conveyed to screen reader users
- Rule ID:
- User Impact:
- WCAG :
The state of user interface components must be programmatically determinable by assistive technologies.
When a button is disabled, that information must be conveyed programmatically for screen reader and other assistive technology users. If the disabled state is not conveyed, the user may be confused as to why the button is not responding to their interaction.
If the button is a native HTML
<button> element, you must add the
disabled attribute to the element.
If the button is a custom element, you must add the
aria-disabled="true" attribute to the element.
