Support » Plugin: Safe SVG » Accessibility Suggestions

  • Resolved Graham Armfield


    Thanks for this excellent plugin, I think it’s really useful.

    I just wanted to make a suggestion for improving the accessibility of the SVG that is output onto pages – specifically for screen reader users. If you could do this one thing, it would benefit many people.

    So, when your plugin is putting out the tag for the svg files , you correctly use the alt attribute to include any alternate text that the user has added. However, SVG support in screen readers is still a fairly new thing, and to ensure widest possible support, it’s also necessary to add the role=”img” attribute to the tag too – otherwise some screen readers won’t ‘see’ the SVG image.

    It stripped out the HTML, but hopefully you get the message.

    Thanks for the insight Graham.

    I’m looking into this now and hopefully will have an update to release for this in the near future 🙂
