5.1.1. Indicate the size and format of each document that can be downloaded

For each link that points to a document that can be downloaded, the following information must be included in the link text:

  1. Name of the document.
  2. Format of the document.
  3. Size of the document.

If it is not practical to make certain link texts explicit (lack of space in the mock-up, for example), there are other solutions that can be used later in the development phase (adding tooltips, for example). Nevertheless, this is a compromise solution that is less effective than directly optimizing the link text.


Example of indication of size and format of a PDF document.
