Accessibility Fundamentals: Semantics and Navigating Content
One of the key goals in building an accessible experience is to make sure users of assistive technology can browse the page efficiently. Proper usage of h1-h6 headings can really improve the browsing experience for someone on a screen reader, because they help the user quickly create a mental outline for the page content. Combine this with HTML5 landmark elements like main and nav, and the user can take advantage of built-in screen reader feature to quickly jump from one section of the site to the next. Today on A11ycasts I’ll show you how this works using the VoiceOver screen reader and a few simple examples.
