The Fix empty header tags wizard provides you with "header tag" errors for the course and removes the empty headers tag to help fix them quickly. Both sighted and screen reader users depend on headings to organize and navigate the content on the page. Headings should not be empty and should represent an accurate outline of their relevant content. The existing empty header tag errors are listed with a “Submit Bulk Fixing” button, which will then update all the empty header tag errors on that current page.

All fixes applied through this wizard can be reverted with the Bulk fix log. All errors hidden through this wizard are located in Exception Management.
