  • Google Lighthouse - Form elements do not have associated labels - Solved

    I thought I'd pass along something that was driving me crazy and I found an easy solution to. I was using Google Lighthouse to review my web pages and hopefully improve the scores. I couldn't get my accessibility score to 100 because I kept getting "Form elements do not have associated labels" for my Zoom search input. I'm using a font-awesome magnifying glass which apparently screen readers can't read. After a bunch of searching and trying all kinds of crazy ways I stumbled upon an easy solution. Just add Aria-label tag to your html. for example, <input type="text" id="zoom_searchbox" name="zoom_query" size="20" value="" class="zoom_searchbox" style="width: 130px;" aria-label="Search"/>. That's it, now I score 100.
    Here's a screenshot of the error I'm referring to:
