Understanding accessibility requirements for small business websites


Not everyone uses their eyes to surf the web. People with vision problems use a device called a screen reader that will read a web page to them. A “click here” link does not provide the accessibility requirements for people using screen readers and does not provide value to those users.

When someone visits your website they usually don’t ready every word of content you have. They scan the page and very quickly to look for something that interests them. If the website is properly built then your links should be very easy to spot within your text. A link that reads “click here” does not explain what the link offers and is not attractive to your user. Make your links stand out with good descriptive text!
