Improving Accessibility (1 post)

    Your plugin provides useful functionality, but the accessibility of the checkbox added beneath the comments form is not good. The current HTML of the checkbox is of the form:

    (input style='width:30px' type='checkbox' name='subscribe-reloaded' id='subscribe-reloaded' value='yes' /) Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.

    Note that I have changed the < and > chars to brackets ( and ).

    If you gave the checkbox a properly linked label this functionality would be available to (typically blind) screen reader users. Also, the label would become an enlarged click zone for the checkbox - something that would help some with motor impairments.

    All you need to do is to change the code to read:

    (input style='width:30px' type='checkbox' name='subscribe-reloaded' id='subscribe-reloaded' value='yes' /) (label for='subscribe-reloaded')Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.(/label)

    This one small change will significantly improve accessibility.

    If you have any questions about this or other accessibility issues please get in touch.
