A label highlights an element on a page to draw attention to it or make it more searchable. Labels can also be used to tag items of the same category.

Keyboard users should be able to interact with the label if it contains interactive elements such as a link or close button. The user should be able to focus on an interactive part of a label using Tab to move forward and Tab + Shift to move backward through interactive elements.

Screen reader users should be able to navigate to the label and read the label text.

The following props/attributes have been added for you or are customizable in PatternFly:

React component
React prop
Which HTML element it appears on in markup
Customize the props on the close button of the label. For example, to change the aria-label, pass closeBtnProps={{'aria-label': 'new label'}} to the Label component.
