Easy Read and Pictograms blocks for Gutenberg

Description

This plugin, created by people with cognitive disabilities, and will allow you to create content with easy read version and pictograms, which can be displayed or hidden at the user’s request as desired and when desired.

An easy-to-read content version is a universal accessibility version of your content that will allow you to communicate with people with cognitive disabilities, but it will also make your communication better understood by people with difficulty understanding the language, or even by the general public.

The easy reading mode can also be used as an aid mode, replacing the content in an easy version, with a help version or extended version of your content, where it is more developed to facilitate its compression.

A few notes about the future features, and possible collaborations:

Our intention is that all our tools comply with the Universal Accessibility and WCAG2, for which we appreciate any contribution or detection of errors that can be found in this regard.

Our team is Spanish-speaking and cognitively impaired, so we appreciate you addressing us in Spanish and English, and clearly and concisely, in Easy Reading mode 😉

If you like what we do and want to help us as a developer to increase the functionality of this plugin, for us it would be a great help and we will be happy to receive it.

We have in mind to develop for future versions …

-Internationalization

-Add easy read mode to all the native blocks of the gutenberg core of wordpress.

-Add new blocks more used in web design, and that these have easy reading mode, pictograms and WCAG2 accessibility, such as contact form, profolio, accessible video block, etc.

-Connection with API that provides the contents of the version with pictograms automatically. Enter the text, that the API already puts the pictograms (Habla Hispana)

-Add to these blocks Audio and Video version for Sign Language. *May be a Pro Version.

-Connections with API for the generation of pictograms automatically in other languages. *May be a Pro Version.

*May be a Pro Version, these future features may have some kind of cost, direct or indirect APIs, we do not know yet.

Does this plugin support?

NO, but as much as possible we will answer all your questions and problems in our support forums, as much as possible. But remember, it’s a free plugin and we have other things to do.

Does this plugin generate accessible content complying with standards such as WCAG2, Section 508 or EN 301 549?

Our intention is that this is so, but if you detect any accessibility error for compliance with these rules and tell us how the content should be to comply with them, we will be happy to prioritize its development.

An answer to that question.
