A list is text that might be short phrases, single words, sentences or paragraphs grouped together as a category. Lists often are numbered with numbers or letters. Lists might have symbols instead of numbers or letters, called bullets. Occasionally lists have nothing in front of each list item. Try to properly tag lists as lists. It may help with accessibility.
Tagging lists is more complicated than tagging headings and paragraphs. If you are lucky, when the document was initially tagged, or when you tagged it, the lists were already created. If not, it is going to take a little work because there is no one-click solution for creating lists.
If a block of text should have been tagged as a list, but was not, follow these directions:
Tag each list item as a paragraph if they are not already tagged as such
In the tag view, right click on the first item and choose New Tag > List. Click OK
Move the List tag above the first paragraph tag by left clicking on it and dragging it to where you want to place it. A dotted line with a small black triangle will show up where you’ve chosen to place the tag. Release the right mouse button.
Next, move each paragraph tag that you just tagged so that it is in order and under the List tag you just created and moved. Make sure they are incorporated into the List tag so what when you click the minus tag in front of the list tag it hides all of the paragraph tags you just made and becomes a plus sign.
Now rename each of the paragraph tags as a list item tag. You can either right click on each one choose Properties > List Item or rename them by highlighting them and naming them <LI>, much as you would rename a file on your computer.
If you want to be thorough, you can tag the symbol in front of each list item, if one exists, as a paragraph, then tag that as a list label (<LI_Label>) and then tag the actual list item as a list title (<LI_Title>). Place the list label and list title tags under a List item tag. Often when the program tags lists, it does it this way.
At this time, the only requirement is to tag the list as a list. The list label and list title are not required, but may be in the future.
