So I got contacted about making the site more accessible and after trying to look for themes I could enjoy, and going through basic plugins, I found something. It is called Enable Accessibility by uPress. The gist is, the plugin was made to adhere to accessibility standards set in Israel which fine web sites that don’t provide basic options like font size control, contrasts displays, and etc. Now, while that isn’t done in America, at the same time it doesn’t hurt to have it.
So, if you see a blue symbol at the corner of your screen with a handicapable person, that is to provide the options noted above, alongside a few others. Just make sure you click on the US flag to get it in English, unless you speak Hebrew.
Speaking of other languages, I added a translate option to the main sidebar. Something I honestly should have had a long time ago, but with so many plug ins running already, I’ve been trying to cut down or minimize how many are in use. Just to not kill my page load speed. But, with adding the accessibility option, I figured I minas well add a translator too.
I should note: For some reason, on desktop Chrome and Firefox the access plug-in works fairly without issue (it says it is compatible with the latest WordPress). However, on Microsoft’s web browsers it is iffy. Also, on mobile it strips my theme a bit. You can still read everything, but my drop down menus are expanded and you have to scroll a little bit more for content. It’s not so horrible I want to get rid of it, but I will admit it dampens the experience I’d prefer.
