Support » Plugin: Divi Accessibility » where the Accessibility icon

    Well, after reading the comments here I realized that I was probably missing something …
    Should not this plugin show an Accessibility icon in the corner of the browser window? …
    From there, is it possible for the surfer to determine a different font size, a different color background, etc.?

    I installed the plug-in and nothing happened on the site … no such icon appeared.
    Did I misunderstand the use of this plug-in?

    Hi @zamirgo,

    This plugin automatically starts working once activated. There will be no icons in any corner of the site to indicate that.

    When the ‘Tota11y’ option is checked, there will be an icon shown in the bottom corner on the front-end of the site. This is not needed for the plugin to work, but simply an included tool to help you see any additional accessibility issues with your site. You can learn more about that tool here: https://khan.github.io/tota11y/

    Color contrast & font size issues are not fixed by the plugin. That is up to the site owner to correct on their own using the Divi options.

    I hope that helps!

    Hey Joseph

    Thanks for your response.

    And what if a user who has trouble reading and wants to increase the fonts, or wants more contrast between background and text … How does this plug-in help?

    And one more thing…
    This plugin conflicts with Divi theme 3.0.101 and makes a mess on my homepage.
    After I deactivated the plug-in – everything is back in place again.

    Best
    Zamir

    I am trying to land a redesign of a dental website. It has an accessibility button and that site is very very different from the original.

    I mean it is telling me I need to change my color scheme and background image to make it compliant. But I don’t want to have to change all that for the 5% of people that may go to my site.

    Except for contrast and font size you said it fixes the other stuff. Can you not have or design a plugin that ‘builds a basic fully handicap accessible version of a website” that the person would click on to have full access. That is the true solution to the ADA compliance requirement.
