It has a third for attribute that consists of a space separated list with the id of the form elements that contribute or affect the output displayed in <output>.

Regarding accessibility, many browsers implement this element as an aria-live region. Therefore, assistive technology will announce changes to the value displayed in <output> without removing the focus from the form element that caused the change.
