WP Accessibility


Questo plugin aiuta con una gamma di problemi comuni di accessibilità nei temi per WordPress. Mentre gran parte dei problemi di accessibilità non possono essere risolti senza modifiche dirette del tuo tema, WP Accessibility aggiunge alcune utili funzionalità per l’accessibilità con una quantità minima di impostazioni o conoscenze specialistiche.

WP Accessibility is not intended to make your site compatible with any accessibility guidelines.

Tutte le funzionalità possono essere disabilitate in base alle necessità del tuo tema. Per gli utenti avanzati, tutte le funzioni basate sulla modifica dei fogli di stile possono essere personalizzate utilizzandone di propri tramite il posizionamento del foglio di stile appropriato nella directory del tuo tema.

Funzionalità di accessibilità del tema aggiunte da WP Accessibility

These are features that address issues caused by inaccessible themes.

  • Aggiunge skip link con target definiti dall’utente. (Aspetto e target personalizzabili.)
  • Aggiunge gli attributi di lingua e direzione del testo al tuo HTML se mancanti.
  • Aggiunge un contorno per lo stato di focus degli elementi che possono ricevere il focus.
  • Aggiunge una descrizione lunga alle immagini. Utilizza il campo “Descrizione” delle immagini per aggiungere la descrizione lunga.
  • Enforcement for alt attributes on images in the Classic editor.
  • Identify images without alt attributes in the Media Library
  • Add labels to standard WordPress form fields (search, comments)
  • Add post titles to “read more” links.
  • Remove tabindex from elements that are focusable. (Also fixes plugin-caused problems.)

WordPress Core Accessibility Issues fixed by WP Accessibility

These are features that address issues caused by current or past WordPress core accessibility issues. (Issues added in content, such as target or title attributes, are persistent even when WordPress is updated.)

  • Forza un errore nella pagina di ricerca quando una ricerca è fatta con una stringa vuota. (Se il tema ha un template search.php.)
  • Rimuove gli attributi title ridondanti dagli elenchi delle pagine, delle categorie e dai menu archivi.
  • Risolve alcuni problemi di accessibilità negli stili della sezione amministrativa di WordPress

Content specific fixes:

  • Rimuove gli attributi title dalle immagini inserite nel contenuto.
  • Rimuove l’attributo target dai link.

Strumenti di accessibilità incorporati in WP Accessibility:

These are tools provided to help you identify issues you may need to fix.

  • Valuta il contrasto tra due valori esadecimali di colore forniti.
  • Abilita la diagnostica CSS per mostrare problemi CSS individuati nell’editor visuale o nel front-end del sito.

Il plugin è inteso per aiutare con le più comuni mancanze trovate nei temi e per risolvere alcuni problemi del core di WordPress. Non può correggere tutti i problemi (nemmeno con largo margine), ma fornisce strumenti per correggere alcuni problemi, integra l’accessibilità del tuo sito o ne identifica i problemi.

WP Accessibility aggiunge qualche informazione tramite JavaScript. È realmente accessibile?

Sì. Richiede che l’utente stia operando da un dispositivo che ha il supporto per JavaScript, ma oggigiorno ciò comprende la maggior parte dei dispositivi e browser, inclusi i lettori dello schermo.

Ho installato WP Accessibility ed eseguito alcuni test, ma sto ancora ricevendo errori che WP Accessibility dovrebbe correggere.

Anche se WP Accessibility sta funzionando correttamente, non tutti gli strumenti di test per l’accessibilità rilevano le correzioni. Ecco una risorsa per maggiori informazioni: Mother Effing Tool Confuser.

WP Accessibility works great and is a super valuable start to making WP sites more accessible. It's huge help, thank you!

My theme doesn't come with accessibility out of the box. WP Accessibility fixed some of those. Brilliant plugin and above all it is free.

A couple of weeks after I had settled on the theme for my website, I found out that the theme was not "accessibility ready." Wanting to make sure my users could still access the content on my website without having to change themes, I found this plugin. It provides some great features, including skip links, the ability to remove target attributes from links, an accessibility toolbar with large-text and high-contrast modes, and various other features. All of these can be toggled on or off depending on the needs of your website. The plugin is especially useful for beginner website creators. Of course, it can't provide everything that could be needed for user accessibility, but it does provide lots of fantastic features to help your website become more accessible. Thanks for creating and maintaining this plugin!

For an entry level user who has no idea where to start with accessibility this plugin would be a good start but by no means will this make your site entirely accessible. It appears to be well developed but this plugin offers little to no value to an intermediate level user of WordPress who has already started to tackle accessibility. I wanted to try the plugin to force my authors to assign alt image attributes and it's advertised as being able to force this but it fails, miserably. I was able to upload images and bypass the "suggestion" to include an alt so for me it didn't work (and I'm not talking about marking the image as decorative to by-pass it, there is literally no validation on the alt field, it's just a suggestion with a link).
