Use the jQuery prop() and html() Methods

You can simply use the jQuery prop() method to change the text of the buttons built using the HTML <input> element, whereas to change the text of the buttons which are created using the <button> element you can use the html() method.

The jQuery code in the following example will change the button text on document ready:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<title>jQuery Change Button Text</title>
<script src=""></script>
    // Change text of input button
    $("#myInput").prop("value", "Input New Text");
    // Change text of button element
    $("#myButton").html("Button New Text");
    <input type="button" id="myInput" value="Input Text">
    <button type="button" id="myButton">Button Text</button>
