ISSUE-98: Label location missing from Part A

Label location missing from Part A

Raised by:
Andrew Ronksley
Opened on:
Sally Cain, RNIB: There is no detail within the guidelines about how labels for elements within application windows should be displayed. As authoring tools are in effect applications, it is important that they consider these aspects as well. So for example referring to ISO 9241-171 for label location it says:
"The labels of user interface elements on the screen should be as close as possible to their contents, to the left except for radio buttons and check boxes.  [Guideline 8.2.8]"

Andrew Ronksley (08/09/08). As Part A will refer more to existing software accessibility guidelines rather than repeat a lot of existing information, this issue will be covered in the referenced guidelines.
