Quick access to LC-2855
There are 3 comments (sorted by their types, and the section they are about).
Note a global issue in WCAG 2.0 Quick Reference -
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/, and possibly other webpages. Links
that read “Other techniques may also be sufficient if they meet the success
criterion” have undefined targets.
In trying to determine if links with same href but different link-text violate WCAG2 I came across this statements:
As per SC 2.4.4(A):
"Links with the same destination should have the same descriptions (per
Success Criterion 3.2.4), ..."
However, SC 3.2.4 clarifies that not having identical text does not create a failure. So someone reading the above statement in the explanation for SC 2.4.4 will certainly conclude otherwise.
Extracts from SC 3.2.4 explanation:
While it is desirable and best practice always to be consistent within a single web page, 3.2.4 only addresses consistency within a set of web pages where something is repeated on more than one page in the set.
Note 1: Text alternatives that are "consistent" are not always "identical."
And from an example:
To meet the Success Criterion, the link text for these two links need only be consistent, not identical. But best practice is to have identical text so that when users encounter the
second one, it is clear that it goes to the same place as the first.
Suggested fix to the sentence under SC 2.4.4:
While it is a best practice for links with the same destination to have the same descriptions (per Success Criterion 3.2.4), ..."
If you go to this Understanding page:
And you activate the link to Quick Tips for Accessible Headings (which is under Related Resources), you'll find that it's broken.
It's a link that goes here:
