Do all links clearly describe the page that will load or what will happen when a person clicks or presses them?
How to test:
- Manually review all of the links.
- Check that if taken out of context, they clearly describe what will happen if a person clicks or presses them.

- Look for link text such as "Learn more", Click", "Click here", here. These are all of examples of links that do not clearly communicate what will happen if a person clicks on them.
- It's best practice to ensure that link text is clear and descriptive for sighted and non-sighted users, but if screen real-estate is a limiting factor, hidden text could also be included in the link to make the link text understandable for people using a screen reader.
