The following pages provide various techniques for improving the accessibility of web forms:

  • Basic form hints: Adding hints and descriptions for invalid or required fields
  • Alerts: Using alerts to provide client-side validation error messages
  • Multi-part labels: Enabling complex form labels with a control inside each label

See also the Yahoo! article on form validation and ARIA (retrieved on archive.org), covering much of the same content.
