26. E-MAIL LINKS

A HYPERLINK IN A ELECTRONIC MESSAGE IS A WIDELY USED INTERNET TOOL AND LISTED BELOW ARE THREE HELPFUL SAFEGUARDS FOR CLARITY AND EFFECTIVENESS.

A. SPACING

GOOD PRACTICE MEANS CAREFULLY PROVIDING A BLANK LINE ABOVE AND BELOW EACH LINK IN AN E-MAIL

B. TESTING

WHILE A PROPERLY FORMATTED UNIFORM RESOURCE LOCATOR (URL) IN AN E-MAIL WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME A LINK FOR THE RECIPIENT, FIRST SENDING THE MESSAGE TO YOURSELF IS A GOOD PRACTICE

C. READING

FOR A SCREEN READER RECIPIENT, A GOOD PRACTICE IS TO ALWAYS USE LEFT-RIGHT ARROWS WHEN SELECTING A LINK IN AN E-MAIL BECAUSE UP-DOWN ARROWS COULD ALSO HIGHLIGHT OTHER TEXT WHEN PROPER LINK SPACING HAS NOT BEEN USED BY THE SENDER
