Accessibility in your theme / template - How to 06 Apr 2019 19:52 #52058

Just found this thread and this is an area I've been working on. It seems that very few websites, period, are ADA compliant. With the ADA seemingly ramping up website suits, this is an area we need to be aware of, and proactive with, especially over here in the USA.

I use a couple of different checkers to get a reasonable handle on accessibility. achecker.ca/checker/index.php and wave.webaim.org/ - the first one always finds more useful issues, but the second is nice with its visual presentation.

If you're a Joomla user, there's a great little plugin which adds a screen reader (I hope you don't mind me posting this here Ced. Please remove this if you're not happy with it). storejextensions.org/extensions/screen_reader.html

Hi
thanks for your infos. You are right, accessibility is very important. I could try to work on this but I'm not an accessibilty expert so this would need some help from users to check ;)

Something important also, the main parts of the content are not managed by the template ... for example the alt/title on images are managed in the content (components and modules) and not in the template.

I'm opened to any suggestion to improve things into template creator :)

From TC CK 4.0.21 Release notes:

Add Accessibility score 100/100 (Chrome test)

OK, great. But...
Where? How?

Hi
this is using the default theme when creating a new template. Something important to understand is that the score is based on what is in the page according to sizes and contrast. if you put a yellow link on a white background, your score will not reach 100% ;)

For now I have tested the google Chrome accessibilty checker, there are may be other tools and things to improve ...

Please, I need more information.
I don't understand if it is a new featur of Template Creator CK (if so, how does it work? Where is the score?) or it is just an excellent score that the template can have by the tool provided by Chrome.
Thank you.

If you create a new template >> Start a new template >> Select a layout >> this will have a score of 100/100
TCK can not give any warranty of the score as you are the designer and you can modify any value, but by default it is 100
