I'm wondering the best way to handle validation messages for blind people, or sight-impaired. In my application, the situation on a save with errors is: User clicks save AJAX call goes to save the record; wait bar appears on the page's status bar Error is returned. The wait bar changes to show "Error on save" Below the status bar, each field name is listed with the appropriate error message. ("Name - Cannot be blank" or whatever) Within the fields themselves, the same message is shown again. (Next to the "Name" label on the page, "cannot be blank" would show up.) This functionality is great for sighted people. But for non-sighted, I'm not sure exactly how to handle it. Should an error become "selected" or something? I mean, it's just a div. I don't really have the answer. I posted this in general HTML but it could frankly be AJAX or JS or something. I think HTML is probably the most correct.
