As a screen reader user, it drives me nuts to hear that a list is starting, have one item in that list, then hear that the list is ending. Why should it be a list if it is only one item? If more items are added later, then make it a list at that point.

Just my two cents worth.

Where I think I land on this is that if semantically it could be a list of multiple items but it just happens to have a single item right now that it makes sense to mark it up as a list, especially if more items will likely be a part of that list later. That said, if it will always be a single item, then a paragraph or something else would be appropriate.

Hello everyone,

Is a list with one item still considered and should be marked as a list whether there will be more items added to it or not? I've always thought a list would be considered a list if it has two or more items.

Thank you,
Khoa Pham
