Drupal is a widely used content management system that provides the backbone for a diverse array of websites, ranging from personal blogs to large corporate portals. Its popularity stems from its modular design, extensive feature set, and the strong community support that drives its evolution. At the core of its framework, Drupal emphasizes flexibility and extensibility, enabling users to tailor their websites according to specific needs.

With more than 4,000 active clients utilizing accessibility widgets, the trend towards inclusive web design is clear, emphasizing the role such tools play in creating equitable digital landscapes.

Accessibility Challenges and Solutions

In addressing website accessibility, site administrators encounter a range of barriers but also benefit from effective solutions, particularly in Drupal environments. Improving accessibility not only satisfies legal requirements but greatly expands user engagement.

Common Barriers

Common accessibility barriers on websites include visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive challenges that users might face. For example, content that is not keyboard-navigable can impede those with motor impairments, and a lack of alternative text for images can disenfranchise users with visual impairments. Other barriers entail the absence of captions for multimedia, poor color contrast, and the use of non-descriptive link text.

  1. Non-navigable content by keyboard: Affects individuals with motor impairments
  2. Absence of alternative text for images: Excludes users with visual impairments
  3. Lack of captions/sound alternatives: Disadvantages users with auditory impairments
  4. Inadequate color contrast and text size: Challenges for users with low vision
  5. Seizure-inducing content: Dangerous for individuals with epilepsy

Overcoming Barriers with Accessibly

Accessibly, an AI-based accessibility module, empowers Drupal websites to be inclusive for all users, addressing the aforementioned barriers. It uses an accessibility interface that manages design and UI adjustments to improve usability. The module equips websites with features such as:

  • Keyboard navigation enhancements
  • Alternative text for multimedia content
  • Captioning for videos and audible announcements
  • Customizable color contrasts and text sizes
  • Seizure-safe profiles that eliminate flashing and risky content

Instead of manual remediation for each issue, Accessibly takes a proactive approach to solve accessibility challenges by providing a suite of tools aimed at ensuring a Drupal website is navigable, perceivable, and operable for users with various disabilities. The module’s comprehensive solutions ensure that a wide array of people can effectively engage with a Drupal website.

Accessibly Widget Features

Accessibly widgets enhance a website’s usability and accessibility in terms of compliance with WCAG standards. They offer a comprehensive suite of features to broaden website access to users with diverse abilities.

Widget Advantages

Key features of our widget include:

  • UI and Design Adjustments: Users can modify the visual presentation of a site according to their needs, including adjustments to text size, spacing, and color contrast.
  • Navigation Enhancements: The widget makes site navigation more intuitive for users with disabilities, with keyboard navigation options and screen reader support.

Increasing WCAG Compliance

Increasing WCAG compliance is as easy as installing Accessibly. Drupal developers can use the Accessibly widget to assist in:

  • Automated Testing: The widget leverages tools like WAVE, Axe, and Accessibility Insights, offering reports and recommendations to fix accessibility issues.
  • Continuous Compliance: It monitors a website continually, ensuring that all new content and features meet accessibility standards as they are added.

Legal Compliance and Standards

Accessibility widgets play a crucial role in ensuring Drupal websites come closer to meeting required legal standards, providing functionality to support various web accessibility laws.

Understanding Web Accessibility Laws

Web accessibility laws are designed to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities, ensuring equal access to online information and services. Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) serve as the primary standard, with various laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) referencing it. For instance, following WCAG 2.1 guidelines is essential for increasing compliance with the ADA as they outline how to make web content more accessible.

Boosting ADA and WCAG Adherence

To enhance ADA and WCAG compliance, Accessibility widgets like All in One Accessibility can be implemented on Drupal websites. They address a wide range of challenges faced by users with disabilities by providing:

  • UI and design-related adjustments
  • Screen reader support
  • Keyboard navigation enhancements

By integrating such widgets, Drupal site owners can make strides toward aligning with both ADA Title III requirements and Section 508 for governmental sites, thus mitigating legal risks while promoting inclusivity.

We know of another small company that just got sued for something like $30K for not having their website be ADA compliant, so we are glad this exists! The $5 version works great for us - had a small hiccup with the display/our search bar when first installed but Kaspars from their support team resolved it within a couple of days and was super communicative and helpful. Thanks for a great easy to use product.
