Rocket Validator integrates axe-core version 4.4, into an automated web site scanner.

Documents must contain a title element to aid in navigation

The HTML document must have a title element to provide users with an overview of its content, and when present, it must not be empty.

Screen reader users use page titles to get an overview of the contents of the page. Navigating through pages can quickly become difficult and confusing for screen reader users if the pages are not marked with a title. The page title element is the first thing screen reader users hear when first loading a web page.

The title is the first thing that screen reader users hear when they arrive at a page. If there is no title or if the title is not descriptive and unique, screen reader users must read through the page to determine its contents and purpose.
