• Mobile Accessibility

Optimized Navigation


Repeated components across multiple pages should be presented in a consistent layout. A clear visual indication should be provided for actionable elements. Also, keyboard accessibility remains as important as ever, and most major mobile operating systems do include keyboard interfaces, allowing mobile devices to be operated by external physical keyboards.

  What to Consider


Provide only minimal navigation at the top of the page.


Provide consistent navigation mechanisms.

Link Target ID

Clearly identify the target of each link.

Link Target Format

Note the target file s format unless you know the device supports it.

Access Keys

Assign access keys to links in navigational menus and frequently accessed functionality.


Keep The URIs of site entry points short.


Take into account the trade-off between having too many links on a page and asking the user to follow too many links to reach what they are looking for.
