Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 F42 and Section 508 1194.22 (l)


This element uses JavaScript to behave like a link. Links like this cannot be tabbed to from the keyboard and are not read out when screen readers list the links on a page.


Use an A or AREA element with the link target in the HREF or a target like HREF=‘#’. An A or AREA element without an HREF cannot receive keyboard focus.

Applicable Standards

Note: Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level AA checkpoints.
