Headers/Headings are built in resources that help viewers navigate through a webpage or document’s content.
Headers not only apply a visual style that alerts viewers as to the structure of a document (e.g. large bold text at the top of a page is the title, whereas smaller bolder text throughout a page are sections or subsections), but also tells non-visual users the structure of a page. The way that headers work is that they are coded to read out to a listener “Title – Welcome to LTWR 105” and helps with navigation and better understanding of different sections or topics.
Headers also save time on formatting documents and webpages since headers have a built in style via one click, rather than needing to click multiple font preferences to get the code/size/bold/underline preferred.
Headers should be used in order based on the content that is trying to be communicated. It is very important that header-use remain consistant across the CSUSM website and headers should not be skipped!
