Replace directional link text (i.e.: click here, to the left) with text indicating where the link will direct the user.
Link Purpose (In Context)
The purpose of each link should be determined from the link text alone or from the link text together with its programmatically determined link context, except where the purpose of the link would be ambiguous to users in general. (WCAG Level A)
Link Purpose (Link Only)
A mechanism is available to allow the purpose of each link to be identified from link text alone, except where the purpose of the link would be ambiguous to users in general. (WCAG Level AAA) Therefore, links that are not in sentences should also be named intuitively.
- Good Example: Learn more about CivicEngage website design
- Bad Example: For more information about CivicEngage website design visit Local Government Web Design
Ensure emails and links are masked.
- Example: firstname.lastname@example.org should be replaced with Email Jane Doe.
