The HTML document must have a
<title> element to provide users with an overview of its content, and when present, it must not be empty.
The Algorithm, in Simple Terms
Why this is Important
Screen reader users use page titles to get an overview of the contents of the page. Navigating through pages can quickly become difficult and confusing for screen reader users if the pages are not marked with a title. The page
<title> element is the first thing screen reader users hear when first loading a web page.
How to Fix the Problem
Add an informative title to the document using the
<title> element with meaningful text.
