Same link text in same context goes to different pages Accessibility Checkpoint


Several links on a page share the same link text and surrounding context, but go to different destinations.


Make the link text unique for each target page (which helps all users) or add an aria-label or aria-describedby to the link (which helps screen reader users).

Applicable standards

Note: This checkpoint applies to sets of pages, or depends on content in linked pages, so never fires for single page scans. Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level A and level AA checkpoints.
