WCAG 2.1

The NumericTextBox supports the standards for providing accessible web content which are set by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. For more information, refer to the article on WCAG 2.1 compliance in Kendo UI for jQuery.

Label Element Support

Because of the NumericTextBox complex rendering, to focus the widget through the label element, you need to manually handle the click event of the label and focus the NumericTextBox.

Another possible solution is to use the NumericTextBox Label property, which automatically focuses on the input.
