Accessibility by UserWay

Description

We provide helpful accessibility plugins that work without refactoring your website’s existing code and will increase compliance with WCAG 2.0, ATAG 2.0, ADA, & Section 508 requirements.

WCAG 2.0 AA Compliance is Within Reach
Our Approach: start small, one step at a time
<Without changes to your website’s existing code>

Web accessibility can seem complex and overwhelming if you don’t know where to start.

UserWay’s plugin will instantly strengthen any weak spots that might cause issues.
We are proud to say that tens of millions of pages are more accessible today thanks to UserWay.

Try abandoning your mouse for a couple of days and see what the experience is like navigating your company’s site.

UserWay creates a simpler and more accessible browsing experience for users with mobility issues as well. Millions of people cannot use a mouse or other pointing device and rely solely on their keyboard to navigate websites. Your site should be fully navigable using a keyboard’s tab key, arrow keys, the enter key and the spacebar.

The UserWay widget will make smart modifications to elements on your site that we identify as potentially non-compliant or that may prevent keyboard-only navigation. And we do it all without requiring you or your developers to make costly adjustments to your website’s existing codebase.

Failure to comply with Section 508 of the Department of Justice’s ADA (American with Disabilities Act) Standards for Accessible Design could expose your company to hefty fines, the risk of expensive criminal and civil litigation as well as a reputation for being unfriendly to the disabled.

Reviews

Great accessibility plugin

I’m really impressed with this accessibility plugin, and I evaluated/tried out several. Not only easy to install and configure, but its features (it will even read to you) work much better than those of any other accessibility plugin.

For example, if you increase text size, most accessibility plugins destroy the site layout. This one makes intelligent adjustments to preserve layout, and therefore context and hierarchy.

Great work by the developers.

Zero documentation!

1. The Accessibility by Userway documentation gives only installation instructions, which we all know. That does not count as documentation with me.
– Where to find the Userway Settings? We have to search and find under WP Settings.
– What happens after we fill out the form? We have to discover – oh, there’s an accessibility icon in the upper right corner of the site while I’m logged in to my WordPress site. Cool. But the icon is only there while I’m logged in, so that’s not very helpful for ordinary site visitors.
– How to get that accessibility icon to appear and to work on the site for ordinary site visitors? I have no idea.

2. Today the Userway.org widget server is down and nothing is working at all.

This is a cool idea, a fabulous idea, but it’s certainly not ready for general use.

Love this plugin!

Was so very pleased with how quick and easy this plugin is to use. Love the features, the widget and the accessability agreement. Thank you!

works fine

You’ve done an excellent job! My website needed accessibility improvements, and now I have them done without any trouble with the code. I liked the design too.

works just fine

The plugin installs an accessibility widget on your website. Users can hide the toolbar of the widget altogether if they are not needed.

Excellent job!

Finally I’ve found a good accessibility plugin! Very convenient design, and everything works perfectly. Many thanks!
