If users need to reach out to someone or get help, it's easier to find when located in the same spot across multiple pages. When help info or a mechanism moves around between similar pages, some users may have trouble finding help or completing a task, or give up entirely.
Identifying the language of the page, or inline content as needed, is important for assistive technology so they can present content with the right pronunciation and spelling. It can also help browsers present the content in line with the user's settings.
Embedded content like videos, maps, social media widgets or job feeds are typically placed in an iframe. The
title attribute provides an accessible name that tells the user what kind of content is embedded, and how to interact with it.
Users that navigate by keyboard need a way to quickly jump over repeated sections of the content like headers and navigation. Adding a skip to main content link helps users get to the main content quicker, with less fatigue and frustration.
Images need text alternatives so users know what the image's purpose is and how it relates to the content. An alternative description can also provide the image's context in case it fails to load.
