Use Page Titles to Improve Navigability

The first thing screen reader users hear when they open a web page is the page title. As simple as it may sound, adding a good page title to a web page helps people know where they are and makes navigation between browser tabs a bit easier.

A quality page title should:

  • Accurately describe the purpose of the web page.
  • Be short and concise.
  • Be unique from other pages on the website.
