Page structure, titles and headings
In this guide we cover the most common accessibility issues on Haiku websites and give pointers on how to avoid them. The information is also available to download as a PDF document.
- Page structure should be logical and consistent with other pages on the website. For example, don’t disable the left hand navigation and then use a portlet to rebuild it on the right.
- When using a keyboard to navigate a page, the order must be logical.
- Only use bullet points for lists, not to draw attention to one sentence or link.
- Page titles must be unique to the site and indicate the purpose of the page.
- Use headings and sub-headings to break page content into short manageable sections.
- Headings should be hierarchical.
- Headings must be informative and meaningful.
- Don’t use headings for items that aren’t headings, e.g. to draw attention to a line of text.
- Don’t use bold as a substitute for a heading.
