Screen readers

Bootstrap 5 Screen readers

Use screen reader utilities to hide elements on all devices except screen readers.

Basic example

Hide an element to all devices except screen readers with .visually-hidden. Use .visually-hidden-focusable to show the element only when it’s focused (e.g. by a keyboard-only user). Can also be used as mixins.

          <h2 class="visually-hidden">Title for screen readers</h2>
          <a class="visually-hidden-focusable" href="#content">Skip to main content</a>
          // Usage as a mixin

          .visually-hidden-title {
            @include visually-hidden;
          .skip-navigation {
            @include visually-hidden-focusable;
