8.16 Level A − WCAG 2.0 Success Criterion 2.4.2 − Page Titled

Give webpages a title that accurately describes what the content is about. This will help persons with disabilities differentiate the webpages in their browser history.

Before Rectification

A website sample in a browser window titled 'Web Browser'.

It is quite common to see webpages with inaccurate titles such as this one where the webpage is simply named "Home". This can easily be confused with other Home page.

After Rectification

A website sample in a browser window titled 'Web Browser – Web Accessibility – Hong Kong – Home page'.

A proper title such as this one will accurately describe what this webpage is about.
