Accessibility measures how accessible a product or service, such as an application, website, or vehicle, is to people with disabilities. Accessibility can be achieved through products and services designed for all users regardless of disability type. The accessiBe WordPress Plugin helps you make your website more accessible by scanning your website for accessibility issues, providing feedback, and suggesting solutions. This article will show you how to use the accessiBe WordPress Plugin.
First, you need to install and activate the plugin. You can do this from the Plugins page of your WordPress maintenance service. Once the plugin is activated, it will start scanning your website for accessibility issues. The scan may take a few minutes to complete, depending on the size of your website.
After the scan is complete, you will be taken to the accessiBe settings page. Here, you can see a list of all the accessibility issues found on your website. For each issue, there is a brief description and a link to more information about the issue.
You can also see how many issues were found on each page of your website and the severity of each issue. The severity of an issue is determined by how much it impacts the usability of your website for people with disabilities.
The accessiBe WordPress Plugin provides solutions for each issue that it finds. You can select these solutions from the drop-down menu next to each issue.
There are three different types of solutions:
– Fix: This type of solution will fix the accessibility issue automatically.
– Warning: This type of solution will display a warning message to users with disabilities, letting them know that the content may not be accessible.
– Info: This type of solution will provide more information about the issue.
You can also export the results of the scan to a PDF file. This file will contain all the information about the accessibility issues that were found on your website, as well as the solutions that were suggested.
