Navigation

Summary

  • If you repeat navigation bars on a page, let users skip them.
  • Ensure that all links have meaningful text.

Guidelines

  1. Navigation links, menus, or banners are often repeated on each web page. Include a skip to main content link at the top of each page so that screen reader users can save time and don't have to listen to a repeated menu each time they move to a new web page.
  2. Use navigation mechanisms in a consistent manner.
  3. All links should have text that is meaningful. Some users and methods of browsing rely on the link text (and not the surrounding context) to determine the purpose of the link. Link text like “click here” does not provide the user with any useful information about the link.
