Button Text

Buttons should have descriptive and succinct values or text that describe the function of that form button. Like “click here” links, ambiguous button text (such as “Go” or “Submit”) requires the user to scan before the button to determine precisely what the button does. Descriptive text such as “Search”, “Subscribe”, etc. are unambiguous and more accessible. If multiple buttons are present on a page, the button text should be different (e.g., “Search the web” versus “Search this site”).
