Accessibility in Google Search

Once you search for something, the search results page is organized so that it's easy for common screen readers to navigate the page.

Section headings

The search results page has a hierarchy of section headings:

  • Heading level 1 (H1): The Google logo and a link named "Google" that points to the Google home page.
  • Heading level 2 (H2): The first H2 heading is for your search results. The second is for ads. Depending on what you search for, you might get up to 2 ads.
  • Heading level 3 (H3): Each individual search result and each ad title is an H3 heading.

Search result lists

Both the search results and ads are in ordered lists so you can get to them quickly with keyboard commands.
