Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 F63


Link uses general text like «Click Here» with no surrounding text explaining link purpose.


Screen reader users use text around links to help understand what the link does. If the link text is very general, and there’s no surrounding text, there’s no way to work out what the link does. Either use a descriptive link label (which helps all users) or add an aria-label to the link (which helps screen reader users).

Applicable Standards
