Skipping skip links | Vasilis van Gemert

Vasilis puts together an interesting argument for getting rid of skip links, and instead architecting content so that navigation blocks are below the main text.

On the experience of an elderly screenreader user:

He never understood why every page he deliberately visits always starts with links to other webpages! Of course! It doesn’t make any sense. Why did we ever conclude that this is somehow a good idea?

After all, can you imagine trying to pitch this to a PO today:

"Hey, I'd like to start our page with a bunch of ways to leave the page, sound good?"

It's a really interesting point! 🤔
