This result usually occurs when you have a line or paragraph that is completely in bold font and is intended to provide content structure. You should always avoid using stylings for document structure. Headings are used to navigate through documents. If headings are created by making the font large and/or bold, then students who rely on text-to-speech or screen reader programs will not be able to equally experience the document. Additionally, if headings are created by stylizing text, then students who like to generate outlines for studying will have to manually create their outlines.
Select the appropriate heading level*, then click the ‘Submit’ button.
*In order to select the appropriate heading level, it’s important to understand heading levels and how to use them. There are six levels available on the web (more are available for printed documents), and the level you apply should not be based on appearance:
False Positives - If the bold line (or paragraph, though we discourage having that much text in bold) is purely for emphasis and is not a heading, then this UDOIT result can be ignored.
False Negatives - If you created headings by just enlarging the title text, UDOIT will not recognize this as a potential title. As such, please be sure to manually check your pages to make sure that all faux headings are fixed.
