Support » Plugin: WP Accessibility Helper (WAH) » Default link title attribute

    Hi,

    I wanted to ask if in future updates, you could remove the title attribute from the default “about” link at the bottom of the WAH sidebar.

    I understand that the custom link functionality is a pro feature, which is fine, but WCAG discourages using title attributes for links because it’s confusing for screen readers. It’s something that will get flagged by accessibility audits.

    There might be people who have some compelling reason to set a title attribute with the about link, so leaving that as a pro feature seems okay, but since the goal of this plugin is to improve accessibility, having the default version add an accessibility “fail” seems counterproductive. (It doesn’t seem like it benefits you any either — search engines usually ignore title attributes, so you don’t get any search rank “juice” from it.)

    Thanks!
