The (lack of) accessibility with 'Learn More' links

April 5, 2023

A nice article about 'Learn More' links on the (usually) not-too-corporate 1Password blog.

Screen readers can navigate to links without context. So ‘Learn More, link’ will be read out loud and mean nothing.

As the main champion of accessibile design at my work, I often find myself calling out these repetitive links (see also "Read More", "View More" and their ilk).

If I don't have the power to influence these links, my band-aid solution is to add in off-screen text. Works especially well for a component design where there is already a title that the "Learn More" is contextually referring to.
