Hi Bruno,

I would say 4.1.1 Parsing could be used, since the elements aren't being used according to the HTML spec.

Also, 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value as the expected names and roles (and states) would not be present.

Subject: [WebAIM] Use of hyperlinks instead of buttons

Hello group,

I am auditing a site right now. I've been looking throught WCAG criterias, techniques and failure but I haven't found the answer to my question yet.

In the site, they have used hyperlinks were it should have been buttons.
For example, there is a print link that lauches the browser's print functionality.

Under which criteria does it fail WCAG?

Thanks
Bruno
