How to optimize WordPress for accessibility

Here is how to optimize WordPress for accessibility at
Choose an Accessible WordPress Theme • Many WordPress themes are not designed with accessibility in mind • Look for themes that follow WCAG guidelines and are accessibility-ready • Popular accessible themes include Underscores, Astra, and Divi
Use Proper Heading Structure • Headings (H1, H2, H3, etc.) provide structure and hierarchy to content • Use them logically and don't skip heading levels • This helps users navigate content easily, especially those using screen readers
Provide Text Alternatives for Non-Text Content • Add alt text for images to describe their content and function • Provide transcripts or captions for audio and video content
Ensure Sufficient Color Contrast • There must be enough contrast between text and background colors • Use online tools to check if your color combinations meet WCAG standards • This helps users with visual impairments read content easily
Enable Keyboard Navigation • All functionality should be accessible using just a keyboard • Test your site by navigating without a mouse • Ensure focus is visible when tabbing through interactive elements
Write Descriptive Links • Avoid ambiguous link text like "click here" or "read more" • Link text should describe the link's destination or purpose
At, we prioritize web accessibility to create an inclusive online experience for all our users, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.
