Same Link or control Text Goes to Multiple Destinations

Short Description

links to different URL's or controls with different functions have the same text

Long Description

  • It can be confusing when more than one link or control with a different URL or function has the same name, because it is unclear to the user if they have the same or a different destination or function.
  • Screen reader users have the option to navigate through a page by going from link to link or control to control, skipping the text and other kinds of controls in between. When a user only reads the name of a link or control, there is nothing to help differentiate between two links or controls with the same name.
