Support » Plugin: Slider by 10Web - Responsive Image Slider » Slider is not ACCESSIBLE

  • Resolved ituk


    I’ve been using this plugin for a few years and I’m very satisfied, but recently I’ve started to make some modification to my site in order to meet the accessibility standard of W3C, and apparently slider-wd doesn’t comply at all.
    There are three main issues:
    1) Images in the slider are not presented in <img> tags, and therefore have no alt attribute, so screen readers can’t understand that an image is presented.
    2) Links in the slider are not real links with <a> tags, but <span> tags with onclick JS functions, so again – no title attribute for screen readers.
    3) It’s impossible to reach the onclick links by using keyboard only, usually TAB to navigate between elements and RETURN for clicking.

    There are other alternatives for first two issues, like using aria attributes, which I’m not familiar enough with. you can read more about it here on WCAG instructions.
    For the third issue, I think it is a little bit more compicated, but a clue might be found in this page here.

    I’d appreciate any suggestions or changes for the plugin. Otherwise, I’ll have to migrate for a different one.

    Thank you very much,

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the notice.
    Please note that this is the way the plugin code is written and unfortunately currently we do not have any other solution to this.

    Thanks. Have a nice day.
