that you so much for the great answer Ben! looks like i'll have to make some changes. I think i will change it to using a span for the "dd/mm/yyyy" "label" and keep the regular label as a label. it'll invlove changing the plugin quite a bit, but that's ok. do you know if having a described-by attribute pointing to the span, along with the label would be a good idea?

I wish i had access to jaws, unfortunately, it's about $1000, no room in the budget for that. the text inside the field for dates shows the format ie: dd/mm/yyyy or dd-mm-yyyy or whatever the locale specific format is. using html 5 isn't really an option b/c IE doesn't support most of it.

it's an html <label>, which as i understand the screen readers will read to you when the input has focus.

that is a pretty cool tool! though it came up with about 20 options for the 2nd address i tested, and having to search a list and the extra clicks isn't really any less annoying then having to fill out a form with a couple text boxes and 2 drop downs. it also failed on my own address. not allowing for my unit # in a townhouse complex.
