The accessiBe WordPress plugin ensures your website is accessible for people with disabilities. It’s the only one of its kind, and it’s currently free to use! This plugin has been designed by a team of accessibility experts who have created an easy-to-use interface for web developers, designers, and content writers to ensure their websites are accessible for all users. It does not require coding skills or any other technical knowledge – simply install the plugin in WordPress, and you’re ready to go! What’s more, there are no costs involved whatsoever.
Accessibility means making sure people without disabilities can access information on your website equally well as those with disabilities. That includes vision impairment, color blindness, hearing loss, dyslexia, or other types of disabilities. This is important because when you make your website accessible, it becomes easier for everyone to achieve their goals without getting in the way of others.
People with disabilities are not a minority – they form an important part of the population, and everyone should access your website equally well. According to recent studies, 1 out of 4 people has some disability.
The accessiBe WordPress plugin ensures your website has the following features:
- An easy-to-navigate website
Ease of navigation for people with disabilities is key. However, it should never get in the way of your website visitors. Ensuring your site navigation is fully accessible makes it much easier for everyone to find what they are looking for on your website.
- Captions on all videos
Video content plays an increasing role in marketing campaigns and communication on websites, but did you know that people with disabilities can’t watch them unless the captions and transcripts are available? The good news is, by simply installing accessiBe, your videos will automatically have fully accessible captions applied. When videos become more mainstream, and people with disabilities start watching them regularly, this feature will come in handy!
- A website that is compatible with screen readers
Screen readers are special software programs that read content on websites to people who can’t see it. They play an important role in the lives of many web users, but they won’t work if your website isn’t coded properly. By installing using this plugin, you ensure your WordPress site passes all industry-related guidelines and gets compatible with screen readers.
- Social media tags that are fully accessible
The plugin makes sure all social media buttons, widgets, and sharing tools on your site are accessible for people with disabilities.
- A visual interface for non-screen reader users
If you have ever tried to use a website without seeing it through a screen, you know how hard it can be. That’s why we’ve created a special interface for people who access websites using only their hearing and vision. They simply use the plugin as they would normally, and it’s as easy as that!
- Font size and color options
By default, your WordPress site is legible for everyone. Still, they’ve added this feature to make sure people can fully personalize their reading experience on your website. There are four font sizes and 26 colors to choose from – so far, so good!
- Compatibility with screen magnifiers and high contrast screens
Screen magnifiers are special software programs that act as magnifying glasses for your computer screen. They provide additional functions to people who have problems seeing web content properly and help them navigate it better. The plugin is fully compatible with all screen magnification tools, keeping everyone happy.
