Creating Meaningful Page Titles

important accessibility information

Creating an accurate and meaningful PageTitle is important because it is the first piece of information a screen reader or AT (Assisted Technology) user receives when accessing a web page. It allows them to orient themselves and check that they are on the page they want to be on. It also helps them naviagate through multiple tabs and pages in a browser session.

The Page Title can be checked by looking a the Title Bar of the page in the browser.

To change the Page Title, open the page in the CQ Editing window and click on the Page Properties icon at the top of the Side Kick. In the Browser Page Title field enter:

  • The name of the page
  • The name of the associated BC site
  • "Boston College" as an identifier

Please reference image below.
