Thanks for your response!

but my problem is the number 23 of the project that says I should add span element to the third label on my code with a class, which I did it right and it didn’t go through

label for=“birth-date”><span=“sr-only”>D.O.B

Step 23

Arguably, D.O.B. is not descriptive enough. This is especially true for visually impaired users. One way to get around such an issue, without having to add visible text to the label, is to add text only a screen reader can read.

Append a span element with a class of sr-only to the current text content of the third label element.

there is syntax error, you forgot to append a class to it.


<example class="sr-only">

it still not going through

<label for="birth-date" >D.O.B: <span class="sr-only"></span></label>

you forgot to append span to the current text D.O.B:

did this hint You should place the span after the text content D.O.B. , mislead you?

Edit: your first code only needed class in it, I am wondering what pushed you into changing it?


I have don it that way, yet it wouldn’t through

Hi @Enumoh24 ,

This was close.

You have changed the original text which was


So, please replace the : with a . and remove the space after it.

Thank you so much, that was the issue.
I appreciated :+1: :+1:
