Stop using click here, or here for hyperlinks
I'm probably posting this in the wrong location but this was the closest forum I could find.
I want to make an appeal to Microsoft's Accessibillity champions to run some internal training for the folk that prepare Microsoft's web page content and promotional emails. Please teach them how to write effective link text rather than using 'click here' .
Contextual text links have been a Web Content Accessibilty Guidelines (WCAG) requirement for a very long time now. And giving users an instruction to click something is not inclusive; mobile users tap, keyboard users press enter, etc
I'm trying to get my content authors to do the right thing, but while ever content provided by a leading organisation like Microsoft doesn't model best practice, my people don't listen to me.
You're doing such great work in other areas of accessibility, so I hope you can fit this into your workplan
