People with perfect vision can quickly glance at the layout of a web page or document and typically find the content they’re looking for based on visual cues. If they’re able to use a mouse, they can easily click on a link or other control anywhere on the visible page. However, other users, including screen reader users, people using screen magnification, and people who navigate by keyboard, are unable to find and jump to content with similar ease unless the page is coded properly. There are a variety of methods for making websites and digital documents easy for users to navigate.
