[Resolved] Accessibility for visual impairment

  • Hello everyone

    Is wordpress a good option to do a website for visually impaired viewers? Would welcome any feedback on anyone who has done a website with this disability in mind and a link so that I can check it out

    many thanks

  • Generally that will depend on the theme used. There aren’t that many that would be ok straight away, and some would need some minor tweaks. But ideally you’d get a few visually impaired users to provide feedback, as their insights would be better than anyone elses.

    WordPress itself is just about ok accessibility wise (always room for improvement).

    Thanks for your reply
    Do you happen to know of any sites for visually imaired that have been done in WP?

    http://lflegal.com/ is possibly the best example.

    Though http://quirm.net isn’t too bad.

    One of my specialist skills is accessible web design and I have very few problems creating AA+ sites with WordPress.

    http://accessites.org uses WP – as do quite a few of the sites that it showcases.

    Over recent years I’ve set up several sites for people with disabilities, the last for someone visually impaired, two years ago. At the time I found
    the Odiogo plugin great, as it converts posts to audio MP3 Sadly I have no idea if the plugin has been maintained up to WordPress 3.00
    You can still get the latest info here though.

    Good Luck with your project.

    Thanks for advice and links, really useful – will refer to them when I start site
