Page Title

Provide a descriptive title for each page or screen.

Focus Order

If a web page can be navigated sequentially and the navigation sequences affect meaning or operation, focusable components receive focus in an order that preserves meaning and operability.

Link Purpose

Avoid vague link text like "click here" and "read more". Avoid using the same link text for links that have different destinations.

Give links a descriptive name so users will know where the link will take them if selected.


Do not have content that flashes.

Audio Control

Do not play any audio content automatically.
