About lists and accessibility

Lists are recognised by assistive technology and can help group content into easy to navigate sections.

Single A

Making lists

Lists must be made using ol, ul, and dl, and can be used for text or groups of links.

No shortcuts!

It is tempting to create a list using the break tag (br), but this will not be interpreted by screen readers and will not provide any information to help screen readers users navigate the page.

Double A

No specific requirements.

Triple A

Definitions of words and phrases can be provided in definition lists.
