A friend of mine, Graham Jones, is writing an article on the psychology of website navigation and asked me to give my views on the accessibility of website navigation. This seemed an ideal prompt for a blog.

Initially, I thought of website navigation solely as the hierarchical menu structure or the site map, but I quickly realised it should cover all tools and techniques that enable a user to get from where they are to where they need to be on the web site.

This became too much for a single blog so I have written a series of three:

  • The first (this one) covers various menus.
  • The is here.
