Skip Navigation Links are Important

Providing links that allowrepparttar user to skip directly to content, bypassingrepparttar 139783 navigation, enhancesrepparttar 139784 accessibility of your web site. This is recommended for blind or visually impaired users, people who use screen readers, and also for text-browsers, mobile phones and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants). These links are common on most US, UK, Irish, and other government websites, as well as many universities and private organizations.

Fromrepparttar 139785 accessibility and usability point of view, it is recommended that you make such links visible. Why?

In his article titled "Providing Skip Links", Frank Gayne of frontend.com explains:

"Skip links would be useful for people who cannot easily use a mouse. Many of these people depend on tabbing in order to make progress through an interface and might appreciate a skip links feature to lightenrepparttar 139786 amount of work they have to do. If there is no visible focus to let these people know they have hit a link, then this useful feature is lost to them."

How can you build such links? Immediately afterrepparttar 139787 logo of your web site, insertrepparttar 139788 skip link: Skip over navigation.
