SSB’s new Web Accessibility 101 Video Series features short, introductory level videos created by our team members sharing demos of assistive technology and common accessibility challenges. In this week’s featured video, Accessibility Analyst Jeremy Hartley demonstrates how screen reader users navigate websites using heading commands.

With the proper design, headings can be an integral part of how a screen reader user can efficiently skim through content and get the most out of navigating a website. Properly designed headings convey the logical structure and sections of a web page. Visually, headings are typically indicated by color, size, font or spacing. For screen reader users it is also important that explicit and properly ordered HTML heading elements be used to indicate any sections or headings on a page.
