Accessible “read more” links

Thanks to

Russ Weakley’s Simple, accessible “more” links explains how you can use CSS to make “read more” links more accessible to screen reader users. Florian Grell has extended the technique to display the hidden information when the user is hovering over the link – check out Simple, accessible “more” links – v2 for more information on that.

These techniques are useful for linking to full articles from a list of headings and article excerpts when your client or someone on your team insists on having “Read more” links instead of linking the heading. This way the links will actually provide some information on where they lead.
