Creating accessible lists within Pressbooks is very simple and can greatly benefit the reading and comprehension for users who do and don’t use assistive technologies to access web environments and content.
Best Practice for Using Lists in Pressbooks
- Lists should be created using the Bulleted list (shift+alt+U) or the Numbered list (Shift+Alt+O) options within the Visual editor.
- Lists can also be created manually in the Text editor using the appropriate html code for unordered and ordered lists.
Creating lists using these methods will visually structure your list (for example, indenting and increasing the paragraph spacing before and after text) and will allow assistive technology users to identify when a list has been included on your page.
