Assistive technology allows users to pull up a list of links and because of that the text of links needs to be meaningful by itself.
Why is meaningful link text important?
- Links such as “Click Here” or “More” don’t provide any information to screen readers and are meaningless out of context.
- Meaningful link text allows users to perceive, operate and understand, POUR principles.
How to create meaningful link text:
- Make link text informative and provide context.
- Sometimes you need to re-write or re-organize a paragraph to use meaningful link text.
