DEV 2 – Design accessible navigation
Why is this important?
All users need to be able to locate the information they require with ease and confidence. On each page, users need to know where they are on the site and what their options are.
Consistency and simplicity are the keys to accessible navigation. Clarity and unambiguity in links and menus is essential.
You must consider users who may be using a linear navigation device, such as a keyboard, or who are using touch-based gestures.
