Description Adam Doan 2013-11-28 06:18:17 PST
In order to accommodate assistive technology, the search block should provide labels for both the 'simpleQuery' input as well as the 'searchField' select element. 

In order to maintain the current presentation of the search form, the labels can be positioned off screen as recommended by WebAIM here: http://webaim.org/techniques/css/invisiblecontent/

: Added value for the select label.
