Accessibility and Usability Considerations for Web Content

When using web content, it’s important to understand what users actually want. For example, « Click here » and « read more » are both ambiguous terms that assume users will engage with the information by clicking them. However, these terms are not meaningful unless the user is able to read the text. Those with a disability may not understand what these words mean, and may not engage with the content unless they have the context to make sense of them.

This is a big problem for screen reader users because they cannot read links in their browsers and depend on screen readers to tell them what will happen when they click them. For example, they might not realize the text following the « Click here » tag is an article excerpt, but they’ll have no idea what follows. And because « read more » isn’t a hyperlink, the user doesn’t even try to listen to it. And because the URL contains query strings, the computerized voice may have trouble reading these links.

Another problem with ambiguous links is that they’re not always clear to screen reader users. They have to rely on a computer program to determine what will happen when a user clicks on a link. In many cases, the hyperlink text can’t be used to determine if a link is ambiguous. Instead, it needs to make sense to screen readers. For example, « Click here » means « Read more » mean the same thing.

While the hyperlinks « click here » and « read more » are useful shortcuts for reading more, they are not particularly useful for facilitating accessibility. The computerized voice has a harder time understanding URLs, and doesn’t have the context to decipher if a link is out of context. If a page isn’t clearly labeled with a link, the user won’t be able to follow it.

As a rule, a link should be a simple way to summarize the content of a page. If a hyperlink is generic, it’s best to keep it out of the link text completely. When using links, don’t forget to consider accessibility and usability. A website designed for sighted users can still benefit from a « click here » hyperlink, but it’s not necessary to be visually impaired to have one.

When writing content for web pages, you should consider usability. You should avoid using generic calls to action in your link text. People with disabilities may face difficulty reading online content due to low resolution, glare on the screen, or poor contrast. As a result, you should not use a link text that is too generic for these users. You should also avoid putting a ‘click here’ icon on your page.
