Links are important for accessibility. For instance, users of assistive technology may need to listen to a list of links, instead of reading them. Screen readers will notify users when they arrive at a link on a piece of content.
To create accessible links to use in your research paper:
Do not capitalize all letters in the link text.
Do not use the word ‘link’ as part of the link text.
Avoid using the words ‘click here’ to describe your link.
