Foundation - Skip Links


Advertisements

Description

  • If your site contains lot of navigation, then it is a bit difficult for a screen reader to get the site content by reading through the entire navigation.

  • To solve this problem, you can use skip link at the top of your page and use the .show-on-focus class to hide the content and tabindex = "0" attribute to make an element focusable.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of skip links attribute in Foundation −

<!doctype html>
   <head>
      <meta charset = "utf-8" />
      <meta http-equiv = "x-ua-compatible" content = "ie = edge" />
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1.0" />
