3 Things - Tuesday, September 19

Three A11Y tips for a better web experience.

  1. Understanding Page Structure 
    Pages with a clear structure and hierarchy are easy for people to understand. A good structure helps people navigate through content, find what they're looking for, and determine where they are.

  2. Accessible Navigation
    A website navigation is a section of the page aimed at helping you find the main sections of a website. HTML has a semantic <nav> element, which should be used around all navigations on the page. This element is a landmark element and can be used by screen reader users to more easily find their way around the page.

  3. Make the Thing a Link
    Thing-linking benefits all readers, but it’s especially good for accessibility. As most accessibility guidelines note, screen reader users often navigate from link to link and hear just the link text.
