Support » Plugin: Gutenberg Blocks and Template Library by Otter » Animations are not accessiblitly friendly

  • Hi!

    I sadly have to realize that animated elements are hidden first and only appear when scrolled to. This makes the pages unreadable for screen readers 🙁 Do you plan on fixing this someday?

    thanks & bests,
    martin

    Hey @jvmartin,

    We do support the reduced motions option. So if someone has turned on reduced motions in their a11y settings (available in all Windows/Mac/Linux devices), animations won’t appear for them on the website.

    Let me know if that makes sense. Thank you!

    Hi Hardeep,

    thank you so much for your quick reply! I will discuss this with the accessibility officer of our client.

    Would it be possible to just not hide every .animated object with css override?

    happy wednesday,
    martin

    Hey @jvmartin,

    It won’t be possible to do as animations are controlled by animate.css which is a third-party library: https://animate.style/#migration
