Accessibly App is committed to making sites accessible for all, including people with disabilities. We are continuously improving the service we provide through our app to comply with increased accessibility standards, guidelines, and to make the browsing experience better for everyone.
The app uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defined requirements to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Accessibly App is following the best guidelines and is partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA.
Accessibly App is an app supported in Shopify and Wordpress environments. The app relies on the following technologies:
Accessibly App features
When a site has Accessibly App installed, the website can be adjusted with keyboard navigation using the “tab” key (WCAG 2.1/2.1.1). Additionally, see the list of all provided Accessibly App features and tools for better website experience:
Zoom | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.4
This feature enables users to enhance the size of the text to up to three times the original text for better text readability.
Makes the cursor bigger and more prominent. Increases the size for better site browsing.
Invert the colors of the website content. For those with decreased vision, the high contrast greatly helps to read the site better.
Tweak Contrast | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6
This feature lets users manually select from two options: to enhance the contrast of the website or to decrease the contrast.
Tweak Brightness | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6
This feature lets users update the brightness on the site. The content can either be made brighter or darker.
Grayscale | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6
Users can turn on grayscale, making the website content appear only in shades of gray. This benefits people with visual impairment.
Add a supportive reading line to the site.
Convert the fonts available on-site to one of the most easily readable fonts: Helvetica.
Alt Text and Images
Ability to read alt text of images. As of now, our tool has added a feature where alt descriptions for images without them are generated using Google's Vision AI. In the event that you haven't manually written these image descriptions yourself, this greatly helps people with visual impairment browse your site.
Tooltips | WCAG 2.1 / 2.5.3
Add labels to images that contain a written description of the image.
Highlight links to make them more prominent.
Hide images on the site. This provides better site readability for people with visual impairment.
