Description

Hi,

According to the WCAG Success Criterion 1.3.5: Identify Input Purpose, the purpose of each input field collecting information about the user should be programmatically determined.

So, in the comment form, we should have an autocomplete attribute for these fields:

  • Name: autocomplete="name"
  • Email: autocomplete="email"
  • Website: autocomplete="url"

See the documentation to know more about the autocomplete values.

In 53576:

Comments: Add contextual autocomplete attributes to comment form fields.

For accessibility, input fields should identify their "purpose". The HTML5 attribute autocomplete allows for various user data to be quickly autofilled while adding context for some assistive technologies.

This commit adds the appropriate autofill purposes for an author's name, email, and website URL in the comment form template.

Props juliemoynat, bhrugesh96, sabernhardt.
Fixes #55779.

I'm working on the Week in Core blogpost and I noticed that @bhrugesh12 (dotorg profile) should receive props instead of bhrugesh96 (GH profile).

@davidbaumwald would you mind reattributing the props manually using the Core Props tool on Make/Core? Thanks!

@audrasjb I went in to take care of it, but someone else already did. Sorry about that.

No worries, it happens!

These blogposts are at least useful to catch props mistakes :D
