    I’m thinking of using the plugin to require agreement to arbitrate accessibility and other legal claims. But of course, to do that, the plugin popup and TOS must itself be WCAG compliant. Is it?

    I’m going to lean on the side of caution and say “no.” I can’t imagine a popup/modal of any kind would fit the higher levels of criteria for accessibility compliance but I’m definitely not an expert on the topic.

    The following are allegations in a lawsuit I’m defending on behalf of a client, and I’m wondering if your form would at least pass these issues:

    1) Empty or missing form labels which presented a problem because if a form control does not have properly associated text label, the function or purpose of that form control may not be presented to screen reader users. Form labels provide visible descriptions and larger clickable targets for form controls.
    2) Empty buttons, which means that a button is empty or has no value text. When navigating to a button, descriptive text must be presented to screen reader users to indicate the function of the button: and
    3) Redundant Links where adjacent links go to the same URL address, which results in additional navigation and repetition for keyboard and screen reader users.

    I just emailed you a screenshot of the WCAG scan of your sample pop-up. Don’t know if that works to do that. But it stated you had the empty button issue.

    I’ve been tinkering with your plugin for accessibility compliance. I’m no expert but when I put a screenreader on it, the screenreader either ignores the popup entirely or only reads it when I put a cursor on it. Given the number of lawsuits against websites for non-accessibility these days, that’s a concern. Would love to see your pop-up work with screenreaders. Please let me know if you address this issue. Thanks.
