Choose icons from Font Awesome. Iconography should provide a simple, visual indicator of key actions or tasks. Use icons to create stronger contextual emphasis on a page.


Icons will be read aloud to screen readers by default. If the icon is purely decorative in nature, add aria-hidden="true" to the <i> tag to prevent it from being announced by screen readers.

Additionally, if the icon has meaning in the current context, use the aria-label attribute with a value that identifies the way the icon is being used or the location the link take the user.

<a class="site-search" aria-label="Search">
  <i class="fas fa-search fa-5x" aria-hidden="true"></i>
