Content is not a list but it is marked as such.
- Rule ID:
- User Impact:
- WCAG :
Semantic HTML elements MUST be used according to their semantic meaning, not to create a visual effect.
People who can see are able to look at a screen and get a sense of how the page is structured and its contents. People who are blind depend on a screen reader for this functionality. If content on a page is marked up as a semantic list for visual effect, but the content is not in fact a list, screen reader users will have a difficult time understanding the page content because it will be read to them as a list.
Fix this issue by removing list markup and using CSS to create the desired styling effects.
How To Fix
In order to fix this issue:
- Use native HTML elements for their intended purposes.
- Use CSS to create desired styling.
Don't do this:
- Use list markup on content that is not a list.
