Meaningful Markup

Use meaningful HTML markup to indicate the page structure and text language

Web pages with unclear structures and organization can be confusing for individuals with disabilities. A meaningful HTML markup helps users of assistive technology better understand the structure of a page.

Use semantic designations such as lists, blockquotes, and tables to make web pages easier to navigate and understand.


These measures allow users of assistive technology to better understand different page structures and the arrangement of content, which improves navigation.

The measures also ensure more accurate pronunciations of page content, as well as the improved indexing of language changes.
