Take the following mockup as our example case:
Field 1*: [ text input ]
Field 2 : [ text input ]
Field 3*: [ text input ]
We have noticed that when a screen reader (using default settings) first reads through the following page, it reads all the text content correctly. But the screen reader does not state if a given field is required on this first read through. When tabbing through to the fields after the fact, it will state if a field is required on first focus.
Is this acceptable from an accessibility stand point?
