ADA compliance and web accessibility are a big (legal) deal. Here are the main points to remember ...

Don't leave raw coding on the page like this or this,, because it is awkward for assistive devices and screen-reading software.  

In hyperlinks, avoid generic verbiage like "Click here." Simply embed the link in the sentence or text with words specific to the content. 

Also, hyperlinks should be unique on a particular webpage. That is, don't repeat any links unless they point to the same destination.

  • Example of bad usage: Click this Google form for information about Ms. Smith's class. To follow up with her about the field trip, click this Google form.
