Your links should make sense when taken out of context:
- Links such as “Click here” or “Read more” are not helpful to users who cannot see because the links are often heard in a list, not inline with the text.
- "Read more" doesn’t tell you where the link goes, and there may be more than one on the page.
- Links beginning with http://... are difficult for anyone to read, and especially cumbersome for someone who is listening to the page.
On the other hand, links such as “Declaration of Independence” and “Thomas Jefferson” are helpful because they tell you where they're going, and they're succinct.
