Divi Accessibility Helper
The ultimate plugin to make Divi Accessible for all
What is Website Accessibility and Why You Should Care?
Website accessibility is a measure of how usable a web page is for people with disabilities. It ensures that all people can access the website content, including those who use assistive technologies and those with temporary or permanent disabilities.
There are three main areas of accessibility:
- The website should be easy to use by keyboard and mouse users.
- The website should be easy to read and understand by screen reader users.
- The website should be easy to navigate with speech recognition software.
Making Your Site WCAG2 Compliant: The Basic Requirements
The WCAG2 guidelines are the most widely used accessibility standards in the world. WCAG2 guidelines cover a wide range of topics, including making your site accessible, giving users control over their browsing experience, providing text alternatives for non-text content, providing captions and transcripts for audio-visual content, and many more.
Conclusion: How To Make Your Website Accessible For Everyone
Divi Accessibility Helper helps you make your website WCAG2 complaint, but it doesn’t guarantee to follow all the guidelines. It is not necessary to follow all the guidelines to make your site WCAG2 compliant. And we are continuously updating the plugin to add more and more accessibility options.
