When you come to a fork in the road, take it. 
– Yogi Berra

Just like the quote above, giving poor directions will usually lead visitors down a confusing path. When it comes to directing visitors on your website, one of the most persistent accessibility issues is the dreaded "Click Here" or "Read More" – link known as Link Purpose (In Context). In fact, telling users to "Click Here" can often result in less clicks for assistive technology users. 

So how does this happen? Why are "Click Here" and "Read More" such a problem? Listen as Senior Digital Accessibility Consultant Kevin Rydberg explains the basics of the Link Purpose principle, as well as how to eliminate bad directions and add better user experience for all visitors to your website.
