Make sure that repeating components with the same functionality are consistently named

Make sure that components that have the same functionality are named the same throughout the website. This makes it easier for visitors to find the repeating parts. This concerns, for example:

  • texts on buttons;
  • labels of the input field;
  • link texts;
  • alternative texts of icons that have the same functionality.

By naming components in a consistent way, visitors who use screen readers can find their way faster and more efficiently.

The text on the button next to a search field is ‘search’ on all pages, and not ‘find’ on some pages.
