    Hello!
    I would like to ask how can i modify the form to be accessible ready.
    Can i just make changes to the forms right from wordpress or do i have to change the code somehow?

    Thank you!

    What accessibility issues do you see and in which part and how do you want to modify it?

    For the button Submit for example there is no alt text when we use the “read page” function from the userway plug-in.

    As a result someone who only hears can’t see the button and he doesn’t know how to proceed.

    Sorry, I don’t get this part. What does this “userway plug-in” mean?

    Can I check the website you see the issues? Maybe that’ll be quicker.

    I mean that we use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/userway-accessibility-widget/ that supports “read page” (voice that reads text) for persons that can’t read the content of the site or they have problems with their vision. That’s why they hear it and proceed with their options (where to press enter).

    Thanks. I’ve just downloaded the plugin and installed into my local testing site, but haven’t yet succeeded in making it read a label for an element; it only reads the type of field and the current text content. I’ll look into it further. Please let me know if there is detailed information about the plugin.

    I send you an example of problems that show up when we we check the website with achecker

    An Update**

    We used Contact Form 7: Accessible Defaults plugin and it helped with the crusial errors for another website we run.

    But still on the potential errors we have many problems… I suppose it is an issue of the main code…

    You can check the alternative website with achecker to see https://www.panagiotopouloucrysa.gr
