  <h1>Accessible "Read More" Links</h1>

  <h2>The Problem</h2>

  <p>Ah yes, the elusive "Read More" link. These are a common design treatment to instruct users to, indeed, read more. Yet, when it comes to an <abbr title="Assistive Technology">AT</abbr> user, links like these give too little context to be meaningful.</p>

  <p>Here's an example of what we're refering to:</p>
  <a href="#" class="read-more no-context">Read More</a>
  <p>If you were using a screen reader right now, how would you know what this link meant? Read more about what?</p>

  <h2>A Solution</h2>

  <p>Here's an easy and effective solution to give users more context:</p>

  <a href="#" class="read-more with-context">Read More <span class="visuallyhidden">about the topic this article is pertaining to.</span></a>

  <p>See any extra text? Me neither. This is the result of the <code>.visuallyhidden</code> CSS class hiding the extra text. If you were to test this with a screen reader, it would read aloud the full text within the <code>&lt;anchor&gt;</code> element and the hidden <code>&lt;span&gt;</code> element, giving much more context to the user. This lends further details on what the user is about to click and is indeed what they're looking for.</p>
