Re: Proper title for accordion menu links?

Shipping Address without a title should be enough. The screen reader should read that it is a link within a page (anchor vs. link to another page).

Hope this Helps :o)

Thanks, I'm aware of all that. I have fieldsets with multiple fields (all
with proper labels). As I said, users click on the legend to reveal the
items in the fieldset.

All I was asking about is the link title. If not "click" then what? I
haven't heard any alternatives suggested here.
