Links connect your content to other pages and resources and are an essential part of creating accessible links. However, if your link text is not clear they can add barriers for users.
Use these tips to write more accessible link text.
Avoid Writing Full URLs
Full URLs are more difficult to read and decipher. Instead, provide a helpful text description to tell users where the link is taking them.
Avoid “Click Here”
“Click here” doesn’t tell viewers anything useful. Instead, provide a helpful text description to tell users where the link is taking them.
Watch Generic Links
If you don’t use the URL or click here, what can you do instead? Watch “Mastering Web Accessibility: Generic Links” to learn more about why descriptive links are so important for an accessible web.
