      Description

      Required for WCAG 2.0, Level A (must have), Distinguishable content criteria 1.4.1 – Color: is not the only visual means of conveying info, including prompting a response, action, or distinguishing a visual element.

      Visual indication of links is currently conveyed through color alone (red). Redundant visual treatment is required for links in text, to differentiate them from the other pure text. See
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20101014/F73
      and
      http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20100708/C15

      The convention for links in the past has included the following:
      – indicated by a color and some other visual attribute, such as an underline
      – cursor changes shape when hovering over a link
      – an activated link changes color/hue (for example, bright blue changes to purple)

      On many websites today links are no longer underlined, due to the visual clutter that produces (e.g., see Apple, IBM, & Microsoft websites). User interfaces are explorable by mouse and keyboard traversal.

      Our links are able to be programmatically determined, so are available to the standard browsers' keyboard shortcuts (for jumping to next/previous link) and to assistive technologies, such as screen readers.

          Link styles have been overhauled with the bootstrap integration. Link colors & styles now conform to WCAG 2.0 specifications.
