Quick Tip: Document Language

Identifying a web page’s language is important for accessibility. It helps ensure that multi-lingual screen reader users hear the page content in the correct language audio. Neglecting this basic language identification or identifying the document with an incorrect language can result in the content being very difficult or impossible to understand.

The monthly Web Accessibility Tip comes from WebAIM and is shared to get a wider audience. For more information about web accessibility, please visit the WebAIM website.
