How to use the Button Element to improve Accessibility

If you’ve been struggling to make your code more accessible, check out Rachivee’s great tutorial on how to use Buttons in HTML. While at first buttons might appear to be a trivial matter of semantics, using them in the right place instead of links can have a huge impact on how you code can reach people. If you’re new to buttons like I was here’s the basic principle: “Buttons are for triggering modals, revealing hidden content, moving slides within a carousel and so on. Another way to think about it is, if there is no href value, if there is no url that tells it where to go, it’s a button.”
