9.6 Level AA − WCAG 2.0 Success Criterion 2.4.5 − Multiple Ways

Ensure there is more than one way to access a webpage, for example, by using a search function, site map, standard navigation, etc.

Before Rectification

A webpage sample with only one way to access the content.

The only way to navigate around this website is through the main navigation.

After Rectification

A webpage sample with a search function and site map link to access the content.

In this image, a search function and a site map have been included for users to have multiple methods available to locate the required information. Something like a site map would also be helpful to users who have learning disabilities or have difficulties in concentrating for a long period of time.
