Screen Reader

Fieldset component uses the semantic fieldset element. When toggleable option is enabled, a clickable element with button role is included inside the legend element, this button has aria-controls to define the id of the content section along with aria-expanded for the visibility state. The value to read the button defaults to the value of the legend property and can be customized by defining an aria-label or aria-labelledby via the toggleButtonProps property.

The content uses region, defines an id that matches the aria-controls of the content toggle button and aria-labelledby referring to the id of the header.
