All About Links

Links are embedded in content and allow users to access outside resources. Many screen readers give users the option to read a list of links on the page, so the formatting of these links is important. Accessible links:

  • are not too short and not too long -- two to three words is sufficient
  • are unique (don't use "click here" or "read more here")
  • are made of plain text instead of a url address
