Glossary » skip link

skip link

a link on a web page which, when clicked, skips down to a place lower on the page (i.e. a page link). The deliberate intention of a skip link is to enable a user to skip unimportant, uninteresting, or redundant information and get down to the useful information on a page. A typical use is, when designing web pages for the blind, to put a link at the top of the page that skips over standard company logos and navigation that would be redundant on every page so that the blind user doesn’t have to listen to these items on every page visited.
