Although questions work wonderfully well as headings for many types of web content, they have one downside. The key word in the heading is not at the beginning. If the question is short, sighted readers can see the key word quickly even if it is in the middle of the question. However, people who are listening to screen-readers may not get to the key word. They often skip rapidly from heading to heading, listening only to the first few words.
A solution that may also help sighted readers who scan rapidly is to combine a key word with the question, as in Figure 10-8.
