Scope Element
Target Resources Elements with role="region" and section elements
  • A section element or an element with a role="region" attribute, which also has an author-defined accessible name, will be considered an region landmark.
  • Use the aria-labelledby attribute to provide an accessible name by referencing the ids of one or more heading (e.g. h2, h3, h4 element) or other elements that identify the contents of the region.
  • Use the aria-label attribute to provide an accessible name that identifies the contents of the region.
  • The title attribute may also be used to provide an accessible name to identify the contents of the region. Note, however, that this technique also generates a tooltip in many web browsers.

Column Definitions

Element Identifier
Information about the element associated with the result.
The information typically includes the tag name, accessible name or other information related to the rule requirements.
"Page" means that the result applied to the page. For example, the rule "One main landmark on the page" is a page level rule.
Element Position
The element position is based on the DOM order of elements in the page.
The element position maybe useful in helping to locate a specific element on the page evaluated (e.g smaller numbers are typically toward the beginning of a page and larger numbers typically toward the end of a page).
Element position 1 is the first element.
The highest element position is the last element.
Element position values for most rule/page results will not be consecutive since a rule only applies to a sub set of elements found on a page.
