Accessibility in Google Search

After you search, the results page is organized so that you can easily navigate it with assistive technology, like screen readers and keyboards.

Use accessibility links on results pages

On a computer, there are 3 accessibility links at the top of a search results page:

  • Skip to main content: Goes to the first content item on the page, like a search result or ad.
  • Turn on continuous scrolling or Turn off continuous scrolling: Continuous scrolling automatically loads the next set of results when you reach the bottom of the search results page.

  • Accessibility help: Opens this help article.
  • Accessibility feedback: Opens a form where you can give feedback for accessibility on Google Search. Enter your feedback and select Send.

To select an accessibility link:

  • With a keyboard:
    1. Press the Tab key until you reach the link you want.
    2. Press the Enter key.
  • With a screen reader: Use the quick navigation controls.

Navigate with section headings

To help you navigate with a screen reader, the search results page has a hierarchy of section headings.

On computers

  • Heading level 1 (H1): Includes important areas of the page, like search results, ads, and how to get around.
  • Heading level 2 (H2): Includes names of grouped results, like "Sports results" and "Videos."
  • Heading level 3 (H3): Includes individual search results titles, ad titles, and narrowed grouped results.

On phones & tablets

  • Heading level 1 (H1): Includes the Google logo and a link named "Google" that points to the Google homepage.
  • Heading level 2 (H2): The first H2 heading is search results. The second is ads.
  • Heading level 3 (H3): Includes individual search result titles and ad titles.
