Headings

The following table describes what each heading level represents in a SurveyMonkey survey. Please refer to your preferred screen reader's manual to learn how to navigate online forms and surveys.

Heading LevelDescription
Heading 1Survey Title
Heading 2Page Title
Heading 3Page Description
Heading 4Navigate between questions in a survey
Heading 5Error messages

Please note that Heading Level 5 (error messages) comes before Heading Level 4 (question text). As you take a survey, you can use your screen reader to present the list of questions by navigating between elements at heading level 4. If you receive error messages upon submitting a page, you can use your screen reader to navigate between Heading Level 5 to move between questions that presented an error.

SurveyMonkey surveys do not currently use Heading Level 6.
