Using meaningful link text

Designing your Moodle space with accessibility in mind benefits everyone.

You may wish to link to a web page or document using the URL resource or within text. To ensure those using text to speech and screenreader software understand where the link will take them, write link text so that it describes the content of the web page or resource they will be taken to.

Avoid text such as ‘click here’ or ‘read more’. If you are linking to a document, it is helpful to provide information on the document type and size. Avoid using the same title for links to different pages/content.

The examples below show links with no information and those with meaningful information.
