WS Form uses the ‘
<span>*</span>‘ to indicate required fields using an accessible friendly tone of red. This a commonly used method for indicating that a field is required. For improved accessibility, you may wish to change this to a word.
You can change this to anything you would like, such as small text. To do this:
- Click the settings icon in the top toolbar when editing a form. The form settings sidebar will then appear on the right-hand side of the page.
- Click the ‘Styling’ tab.
- In the ‘Required Fields’ section, change the ‘Custom Required HTML’ setting. For example, simply enter ‘
<small>Required</small>‘ or if you are familiar with HTML you can enter anything else you wish here.
- Click ‘Save & Close’.
