Links

  • Make sure all links are provided in context, at the point in the content at which they’re useful.
  • Avoid phrases like “Click here” or “Learn more” when adding display text. These can be vague and not very useful out of context for a screen reader user. Instead use something meaningful that gives the user an idea of the content or says where the hyperlink goes.
  • When pasting links directly on the page remember to add a screen tip so screen readers can read out user friendly information about the link. Only available in the Desktop version of Word.
