SOLVED Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) - accessible template needed

  • SOLVED Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) - accessible template needed

    Posted 5 years 4 months ago
    • I need to create a site that follows Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). I am wondering whether I can use an "accessibility extension" (such as extensions.joomla.org/extensions/style-a-design/accessibility ) to make a rockettheme template accessible or I need to look outside of rockettheme for an accessible template. Anyone have experience with this?
      TIA,
      Lisa

    • Hi Lisa,

      In reality you will struggle with any template. If you check the guidelines they are so onerous that most people stick with ability to screen read (primarily alt tags and decent content), also the ability to change font sizes (standard in features area of most of our templates).

      Things such as high contrast pages, font-size etc. are often set by the user in their browser as a default.

      Hope this helps 8)

    • Hi David,
      Thanks very much for your response. This is not only very helpful, it is also what I was hoping to hear. I really like working with RocketTheme templates. So now I'll use a RocketTheme template, with this extension extensions.joomla.org/extensions/style-a.../accessibility/24061 and with high contrast colors, font sizer....
      Thank you very much,
      Lisa
