Using skip-links to improve website accessibility
give or take.
Skip-links are navigation enhancements enabling your visitors to quickly jump to different sections of your page, bypassing content that they do not wish to interact with.
These simple but powerful navigation enhancements can greatly benefit users with disabilities - including those who rely on screen readers or have limited mobility or difficulty using pointing devices - and can benefit significantly.
By using skip-links, visitors can also skip past repetitive content, such as navigation menus and headers. For example, visitors can jump directly to the main content of your page or perhaps directly to the page footer. This can save them time and effort, and make it a little easier to navigate and interact with your website.
Skip-links not only enhance the accessibility of a webpage, they also improve the overall user experience by providing faster and easier navigation throughout the page
Skip links are often activated via keyboard tabbing, i.e. hitting the tab key on your keyboard. Learn more about keyboard tabbing.
