1.7. Provide skip links

A “Go to content” skip link must appear at the top of at least one of the graphic mock-ups. The “Go to content” skip link must be displayed in the same place at the top of each page.

Tip

It can be hidden by default, if you prefer.

In that case, during the development phase you will need to make it visible in some situations (navigation with the keyboard, version for mobile phones, etc.).

Example of a “Skip to content” skip link that appears at the top of the page when the user navigates with a keyboard.

Note

Links such as “Go to menu”, and “Go to search”, can also be added besides the “Go to content” link if these items are not near the top of the page.
