    Hello,
    I am looking for a plugin to make my site blind friendly. I need it for several sites and tried searching the plugins but I’m sure someone has created a plugin to read the page. Any information is much appreciated.
    Thank you,

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    There is a WP Accessibility plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-accessibility/), and probably others, you can add that will help you set up some accessibility features but generally folks who browse the web without eyesight use their own screen reader. So having your site “read” itself would not be necessary. You can also look on https://www.section508.gov to see some of the accessibility standards you can implement on your site.

    Hello:

    Overall, accessibility is not about the plugins you use, but rather the way in which the site is coded. So, though you might have some problems caused by a lack of accessibility in the third-party plugins you use, most accessibility problems stem from a site developer not adding alt text or keyboard-navigable elements on a page. Before coding the site, I would look at the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), provided by the W3 Consortium, as well as the resources provided at http://www.webaim.org. Once you are finished coding and are ready for the site to be tested, I would suggest consulting with a professional accessibility tester–preferably a blind one. Perhaps the best testers of this kind can be found at [modetarated] and [modetarated] As a blind screen reader user and accessibility tester, I could probably put you in touch with some of these people personally. Please email me at [modetarated] if you would like help with this.

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    @lynchburgaccess, We appreciate you taking the time to help out, but there are a couple of things we need to avoid on the forums. One is asking/ providing email addresses and the other is advertising services of organisations outside of WordPress.org. Once again, thank you for your support.
