Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 53

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.

i have written it out, and it has told me the following in response to my code:

“You should place the span after the text content D.O.B. .”

Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 53

Link to the challenge:

Welcome to the community @eden.crane81 !

This step wants us to use the D.O.B. text.

However, it wants us to place the span after it (with the opening span have the class of sr-only) and the closing span immediately behind the opening span.

This is done to help us learn how to code for screen reader visibility for the text.

I hope this helps you.
