For me it’s not a question of quantity, but of precise captioning. <nav

I’d be interested, which SC could apply: 2.4.6, 2.4.10, 4.1.2 or even 1.3.1?

Betreff: [WebAIM] multiple navigation landmarks

Spring-boarding from my previous thread ... I'm in the process of updating
our site templates with landmarks and I have a question regarding the
quantity of navigation landmarks.

Let me preface by saying that the code surrounding our navigation needs a
lot of work which will ultimately greatly reduce issue. That being said,
currently, we have our global navigation, subsite navigation, global mobile
navigation, and breadcrumb navigation. Is adding the navigation landmark
(with appropriate identifiers) appropriate for all four of these or is that
too much? I think the desktop/mobile global naves and the subsite naves
should all have the role, but I'm on the fence about the breadcrumbs.
