It is important to me that you are able to enjoy an accessible user experience (AUX) on this website. As a Deaf person who prefers to communicate in sign language, I can empathize with not being able to enjoy your experience due to an inaccessible experience with text on your device.
Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert on all devices. My experience is limited to Apple devices where I can utilize the built-in features which I will describe in this post.
Table of Contents
On this site, I utilize the WordPress (WP) plugin, WP Accessibility. It allows me to add two toggle features that we all can turn on or off. There is a third toggle feature that is only available to WordPress administrators.
- Font Size
- Greyscale (only available to logged-in administrators)
By default, the toggle features will appear first when tabbing through the website. The expected behavior while tabbing into the webpage from your browser’s toolbar should be in the following order.
- WP Accessibility Toggle Features
- Genesis Framework Skiplinks
- Site Logo or Title
If you are not experiencing this behavior, use the link to the contact form at the end of this post to let me know what you are experiencing. No one ever said technology was perfect but I will do my best to improve your AUX.
Where You Should Be Able to Find the Toggle Feature
At the time of this writing, the toggle feature is placed on the left side of your screen.
I do not have sufficient data to determine if the left side of the screen is better UX than the right side of the screen.
If you find this to be an issue when scrolling, please leave a comment below or contact me to let us know how we can improve the placement of the toggle feature.
More Details to Be Added Soon
This post is a work in progress as I gather additional resources to help as many people as possible.
