Define the Language

Is your site's or document's language defined, e.g., English, French?

When creating a website, it is important to programmatically define the language of the content on the page so that assistive technology, like a screen reader, is able to properly deliver and pronounce the content using the correct language.

You may use the lang attribute in the <HTML> tag of your page to specify the language. The value of your lang attribute is the language of your page.

For example, here is a HTML tag with the lang attribute for "en" - which stands for English:

<html lang="en">
