ARIA labelledby jQuery plugin

The ARIA labelledby jQuery plugin makes it easy to add relationships between page sections and their labels according to the WAI ARIA best practices.


Place the following code in the <head> of your XHTML document.

Note: For best performance, it is recommended that you combine all JavaScript files below into a single minified file.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.4.2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.aria.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.aria.labelledby.js"></script>;

The following example should be run on page load, or right before the </body> tag.

In this example, the first h2 found within each element with class of section will be treated as the label for that section.
