Best Practices Around Lists

  • Updated

Q: Can you share some best practices around lists? 

A: A list is a list, you have ordered lists, unordered lists. If you are listing items, you need to be using one of those. There’s also a definition list and I used to tell people all the time “oh you should use this for FAQ’s" but it’s not even recognized by most assistive technologies. So anytime you’re doing a list, it should be a list. It doesn’t need to have the bullets, but it needs to be programmatically a list so that if you’re using a screen reader it will tell you you’re on “Data tables” which is item three out of ten items.
