Semantic markup in HTML is a writing style for structuring your HTML applications.

  • Edit the HTML source code made up of divs and unsemantic elements with appropriate semantic tags where they make sense.
  • Identify the relevant divs and replace them with appropriate semantic tags such as nav, main, footer etc. as well as including HTML attributes such as alt, role, aria-label that improves accessibility
  • In the end, the web page’s accessibility score on Lighthouse should go from the current score of 82 to the official solution’s Accessibility score of 98.
