Learn Accessibility by Building a Quiz - Step 23

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.

My answer is

D.O.B.
        </label>
        
        <input type="date" name="birth-date" id="birth-date" />
      </div>

it is not working. can you give me a correct answer

Challenge: Learn Accessibility by Building a Quiz - Step 23

Link to the challenge:

From what I can see, you need to move your span element so that the text is nested within it. You currently have both the opening and closing tags after the text content
<label><span>text content</span><label>
edit: apologies, I’ve given you the wrong info.

try putting both span tags after the text content but still within the label element.
