The page must have a link at the top (before the navigation) that allows users to skip lengthy navigation and proceed to a page's main content to save time.
The Algorithm, in Simple Terms
Ensures that the best practice of having a skip link as the very first link in a page is adhered to
Why this is Important
Screen readers announce content sequentially. What this means for users of assistive technology is that the entire navigation, which can be quite lengthy, will be read out to the user before reaching any of the main content. This can be time consuming and unnecessary, which is why it is important to include a link to the main content at the top of the navigation.
How to Fix the Problem
Ensure that the webpage has a link at the top of the page that allows the user to skip the navigation.
