    We don't use plugins or widgets

    Meeting accessibility is not about simply installing a quick and cheap (or free) plugin or widget. These can only address the very surface visual aspects of accessibility, and not very well. And the very fact that these tools require the user to interact and enable them to get the website usable for them means they fail at the first. Moreover, website accessibility is about removing barriers for the user, not adding them.

    Our WCAG 2.1AA website package is built from the ground-up at code level. It automatically works with those users who rely in assistive technology so they don’t need to do anything for the website to work for them. You can read more here about why using plugins and widgets is will still give you an accessibility problem.
