I found an excellent post about accessibility on WPKube.com. The author, Maddy Osman makes some good points that having an accessible website can benefit many different groups of people that you might not normally think of:
- Folks with a small screen.
- People with a temporary disability like a broken arm or maybe they lost their glasses.
- Maybe someone finds themselves in a very bright environment or in a location where they can’t listen to the audio.
- Folks with a slow Internet connection.
The post also goes into some of the legal aspects of accessibility and also says that most people with disabilities will leave a website if it’s not accessible. The author recommends the WP Accessibility plugin by Joe Dolson, which I’ve been using for some time now.
There are a number of tips to help make your site more accessible. It’s a good read and I highly recommend it.
