DJ-WCAG-Improvement: Free YOOtheme plugin for Joomla 4 & WordPress

DJ-WCAG-Improvement is a WordPress and Joomla 4 free plugin for YOOtheme Pro Page Builder. Its role is to improve Yootheme elements and achieve WCAG AA level compliance.

DJ-WCAG-Improvement plugin

DJ-WCAG-Improvement is another plugin release for a YOOtheme Pro Page Builder. 

YOOtheme Pro is a trendy Page Builder compatible with leading OpenSource CMS'es, Joomla, and WordPress. It brings ready-made, modern layouts suitable for different types of websites.

DJ-WcagImprovement is a plugin that adds an aria-label for 12 yootheme elements (button, grid, icon, overlay-slider, pagination, panel, panel-slider, popover, slideshow, social, switcher, to top).

All you need to do is install the plugin, enable it, and the aria-label field will appear in the YOOtheme element's options.

You should know that WCAG errors in YOOtheme-based templates/themes are mainly due to the lack of an aria label on most elements.

DJ-Wcag Improvement plugin corrects that by allowing you to add aria-label attributes to elements that do not have them in regular YOOtheme installation.

The plugin is included in our WCAG quickstart websites

Although the launch of the free WCAG plugin is today, it has appeared in our products before (exclusive).

Three WCAG website Quickstarts for Joomla 4 and WordPress were recently released:

The plugin came only with mentioned quickstart and has the same role - improving YOOtheme elements and achieve WCAG AA level compliance.

Other accessibility tools

For many years, we have been developing solutions for Joomla and WordPress to improve website accessibility. 

DJ-Accessibility - plugin for WordPress and Joomla

It’s a set of tools to help people with disabilities navigate the site. You can display accessibility options in a pop-up or a toolbar on your page. This plugin provides enhanced features to increase the UX of the site (contrasts, read mode, screen reader, link selection, etc.)

DJ-MegaMenu - Joomla menu module

This Joomla 4 menu solution was designed to meet the WCAG requirements.
DJ-MegaMenu is fully responsive mobile-optimized with horizontal and vertical layouts and an off-canvas menu. It’s fully accessible by keys on your keyboard.

DJ-MediaTools - gallery, and slideshow for Joomla 4

DJ-MediaTools is a responsive, accessible Joomla 4 slider that can be managed through components and modules.

An additional alternative is to use accessible Joomla templates or WCAG WordPress themes. It is always easier to launch a WCAG-ready website than launch a website not meeting the requirement and then improve WCAG compliance.

Accessible Joomla templates follow recommendations for making web content accessible WCAG ( ADA & Section 508). WCAG WordPress themes are designed and developed specifically to meet WCAG and ADA requirements.

We also create custom WCAG 2.1 compliant websites at AA / AAA level, based on complete and modern WordPress / Joomla solutions.

It is possible to create a WCAG-compliant website with a monthly subscription. The monthly subscription cost for such a project starts from 180€ per month, and the contract is concluded for a minimum of 2 years. The main benefits of such a solution are low monthly installment, technical support, and monitoring of a website based on CMS Joomla or WordPress for the duration of the contract and the included hosting cost.
