Creating an accessible website is essential for reaching a broader audience and complying with international web standards. For users of Elementor, a popular page-building plugin for WordPress, integrating accessibility widgets is an effective way to ensure that their websites cater to all visitors, including those with disabilities. Accessibility in a web context means that the website is designed in such a way that all users, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities, can navigate, understand, and interact with the site.

Why Choose Accessibly for Elementor Accessibility

Elementor provides built-in technology that supports the creation of more accessible websites without the need for extensive coding or additional CSS. However, achieving full accessibility often requires the use of specialized accessibility widgets. These tools can automate many of the technical requirements of web accessibility standards, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), making them increasingly compliant and functional for users with various accessibility needs.

Accessibility widgets, such as Accessibly, offer a range of features designed to enhance a website’s usability. Accessibly can add a simple and seamless way to adjust text sizes, contrast levels, and navigation elements, providing users with disabilities a better, more inclusive web experience.

Integrating this widget with an Elementor website can be straightforward, often requiring just the addition of a JavaScript code snippet or the use of custom code options within the Elementor platform itself. 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.

Accessibly makes it possible to increase compliance with ADA law and WCAG 2.1 & 2.2 guidelines at every step of your web accessibility journey. Join the thousands who already trust Accessibly for their digital accessibility needs by beginning a free trial (no credit card required).

Understanding Elementor Accessibility and Website Accessibility

Elementor is a widely recognized website builder for WordPress that enables designers and developers to create websites with ease. It still requires a WordPress accessibility plugin, though.

Its popularity stems from a user-friendly interface and a plethora of features that allow for the creation of sophisticated web pages without requiring extensive coding knowledge. It operates on a visual drag-and-drop mechanism, making it accessible to a broad range of users, from beginners to professional web developers.

Improving accessibility is essential; it ensures that WordPress themes are usable by everyone, including those with disabilities. This crucial aspect of web design is guided by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), which provide recommendations for making digital content more accessible.

Elementor’s stance on making a website accessible has evolved, now offering tools and features to support the creation of accessible websites. There are plugins specifically designed to enhance accessibility, and the platform’s technology supports compliance with accessibility standards.

When designing with Elementor:

  • Perceivable: Content should be presentable in ways that are perceivable by sight, sound, and touch. Readable fonts is only the beginning. 
  • Operable: User interface components and navigation must be operable by users with diverse abilities.

Developers and website owners must remember that technology and content determine a site’s accessibility level. While Elementor supplies the technology, content creators must be mindful of their contributions to web accessibility.

Identifying Common Accessibility Barriers

In the context of Elementor websites, accessibility barriers can prevent a significant portion of the population from fully interacting with online content. Addressing these challenges is crucial for an inclusive web experience.

Overcoming Barriers with Accessibly

Accessibly is one of the top web apps, designed for an Elementor site to enhance its compliance with accessibility standards. By identifying and rectifying common barriers, this tool assists in creating an inclusive online environment.

  • Visually Impaired: Users with limited vision may struggle with small text sizes and low contrast. Accessibly facilitates a WordPress website with font size adjustments and proper color contrast enhancements for better visibility. One way to do so is to replace the default font size and default font family with alternative methods that are easier for people to see. This ensures equal access to everyone, as many users can’t read what the WordPress template comes with and therefore this is needed to make the site accessible to everyone.
  • Motor Disabilities: Difficulty with fine motor control can hamper navigation for some users. Accessibly offers keyboard navigation solutions. This Elementor plugin makes it easier for those who cannot use a mouse.
  • Auditory Barriers: For users with hearing impairments, the absence of captions or transcripts can be a barrier. You must include these page elements. With Accessibly, websites can implement features to address this gap.
  • Cognitive Disabilities: Ensuring that content is clear and predictable supports users with cognitive challenges. Accessibly logically helps structure content, improving overall comprehension.
  • Seizure Disorders: Websites should avoid designs that are known to induce seizures, such as flashing lights. Accessibly can ensure that such risky elements are replaced or removed.
  • Technological Limitations: Users with outdated hardware or software might experience accessibility issues. Accessibly ensures that websites remain navigable and functional across a range of devices and browsers.

By leveraging Accessibly within Elementor, web creators can significantly decrease these barriers, laying the foundation for a more accessible digital space.

Accessibly’s Enhancement Features for Elementor

Accessibly, regarded as the #1 accessibility plugin, is designed to amplify the user experience on websites built with Elementor. It integrates a suite of features aimed at ensuring websites are navigable and understandable by all users, including those with disabilities.

Key Features Provided by Accessibly:

  • Text Modifications: Users can adjust text size, spacing, and font type to suit their reading preferences, making content more legible.
  • Color Adjustments: The plugin allows for the alteration of contrast and color schemes to enhance visibility and reduce eye strain for users with visual impairments.
  • Voice Commands: Visitors can navigate websites using spoken instructions, which broadens access for users with physical limitations.
  • Content Scaling: This feature enables users to magnify content without disrupting the layout integrity, maintaining design while increasing readability.

Additional Features:

  • Keyboard navigation enhancements
  • Screen reader compatibility

Why Accessibly Stands Out:

Ease of useSimplifies the implementation of accessibility features on Elementor sites.
ComplianceAids in meeting web accessibility standards like WCAG and ADA.
IntegrationSeamlessly works with WordPress platform and Elementor builder.

The plugin does not overburden the website’s performance, which makes it a favored choice for web designers looking to maintain speed and efficiency. Accessibly’s features represent a robust solution for WordPress users who aim to make their Elementor-built sites accessible and user-friendly for a diverse audience.

Compliance and Legislation

Elementor website creators need to consider web accessibility not just from a utilitarian standpoint, but also to increase compliance with various legislation regarding accessibility. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the United States mandates that digital content should be accessible to people with disabilities. This often means that websites need to provide accommodations such as screen reader compatibility, keyboard navigation, and alternative text for images.

Globally, Elementor developers can refer to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) which offer a wide-ranging set of recommendations for making web content more accessible. Increasing compliance with these guidelines is beneficial as they align with legal standards and improve usability for all users.

Here is a brief on how the Accessibly widget can assist in boosting compliance:

  • Increase ADA and WCAG adherence: The Accessibly widget is designed to enhance website features to meet ADA and WCAG standards.
  • Convenient integration: It integrates seamlessly with Elementor, making it easier for site builders to implement necessary changes.

When discussing legislation:

  • Legal Requirements: Different countries may have their own laws, but many adhere to standards similar to the ADA and guidelines set by the WCAG.
  • Continuous updates: The Accessibly widget helps keep sites aligned with the latest accessibility standards, which can evolve over time.

Elementor website owners should stay informed and proactive in implementing these regulations to ensure their websites are accessible and legally compliant.

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.
