Describe Hyperlinks


An accessible document contains described hyperlinks. Descriptive hyperlinks allow users to understand the purpose of the link before clicking it. Instead of using “See more” as an anchor for a URL, try: “More information about tuition fees for your cohort year can be found on the UofG Student Financial Services web page.” To make this new sentence clickable, highlight the text right-click, then choose Hyperlink. Insert the URL address you want to link to in the given parameters. As with images, hyperlinks require alternate text for those using assistive technology. To add a description to your link, choose Screen Tip and insert. Remember: URL anchors should be descriptive. All hyperlinks must be equipped with Screen Tips.
