  1. Wow, Carrie, excellent post! The more I read your posts about accessibility, the easier it is to understand what needs to be done and how to make that happen. Thanks so much for doing all this research and simplifying the topic.

    • Lynn, thank you so much for leaving this comment. That’s exactly what I was hoping for with this series and it’s great to get that feedback from a reader. Thanks for hanging in there with it. 🙂

  2. Y’know, I could automatically disable the irrelevant functions for Genesis. Maybe I should do that. I’ve already got an accessibility-ready filter; but I’ve toyed with doing theme-specific filters, as well, to make the settings page smarter.

    • Hey Joe,
      That’d be a great addition. You don’t strike me as a person who needs help with code, but if I can provide you any insights into Genesis that would help your purposes, let me know.

      Cheers,
      Carrie

  3. Hi Carrie – great post.

    The one setting I found confusing is the “Remove title attribute from images inserted into post content and featured image”. Any idea why that’s important? I always use title attributes for SEO and so people can hover over the image and get a bit more information.

    • Torben,
      Thank you for the social shares! For WP Accessibility it will vary from site to site – for instance, underlining all links is helpful if you’re working with a theme that doesn’t do a good job of contrasting/highlighting links. Mainly, I find the diagnostic tools helpful during the site creation phase.

      Cheers,
      Carrie

  4. thanks for your post. I tried the genesis accessibility plugin with the daily dish theme. But it doesnt work, because the submenu is not on the right place anymore. Right now, I have no clue, how I could get the daily-dish navigation accessible. Do you have an Idear what I can do? I tried suckerfish and wp-accessible and the genesis dropdown-plugin. Nothing works.
