Breadcrumbs allow users to make selections from a range of values.

Customized breadcrumbs

Here is an example of customizing the component. You can learn more about this in the overrides documentation page.


Be sure to add a aria-label description on the Breadcrumbs component.

The accessibility of this component relies on:

  • The set of links is structured using an ordered list (<ol> element).
  • To prevent screen reader announcement of the visual separators between links, they are hidden with aria-hidden.
  • A nav element labeled with aria-label identifies the structure as a breadcrumb trail and makes it a navigation landmark so that it is easy to locate.
