According to WebAIM and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), Subheads are important not only for sighted users but also for web visitors using assistive technology.
Who can use this feature?
- Headings or Subheads should be short and used to convey meaning and structure.
- They should be intuitive enough that they provide an outline of the content. This allows for scannability as well as accessibility for those using screenreaders as the code contained within the heading is identified by screen-readers and aids in their navigation of the content page.
- Use subhead1, subhead2, and bolding in a hierarchical manner.
In your Editor Widget, you can use the Headings drop-down to select preformatted headings. The Editor has multiple options, ranging from Headline (largest heading) to Subheads 1 and 2.
