input fields – Accessibility – SC 1.4.4 – Placeholder text not visible when browser zoom is set to 200%

I have a question regarding SC 1.4.4 Resize Text for Placeholders for inputs. I am not for the design we currently have, but have to work a solution with whatever design I have.

The first row in the table has inputs to filter text in the table. In normal view without zoom, the complete placeholder text is visible. But when we zoom to 200%, the placeholder just shows “Filter” and the remaining text is cut off. My first question is whether this violates 1.4.4?

If so, the solution I recommended is to provide a title attribute for the input field, which is not ideal. It only satisfies people with low vision who can use a mouse to hover. But, users with motor disabilities using keyboard will still not be able to see, even though they can visually see the table and relate the column name with the input.

Is there a better way to address this issue without changing the designs? Attaching a screenshot for your reference.
