Use Unique and Descriptive Link Names

Links to Documents or web pages must be unique and descriptive for ADA Compliance.

Make sure that the link text properly describes the link destination and makes sense out of context. Telling a reader to ‘click here’ is not descriptive, and is ineffective for a screen reader user.

Assistive technology, including screen readers, compiles a link list for the user to quickly scan all the links on the page. Using descriptive text properly explains the context of the link.

For example, when pointing readers to a page called “About Us”:

Avoid: “Click here to read about our district.”
Instead use: “To learn more about our District, read About Us.”
