Document Type: Standard
Content:All HHS pages must provide a method for skipping repetitive navigation. The skip navigation must be available to screen readers and have keyboard access.
Reason:Sighted users are able to scan a page and quickly select a section of the page to read. Unless “Skip Navigation” is provided, persons with assistive technology (screen reader, etc.) must “read” every link on the page before selecting a section of the page to read.
