Aaron has been carefully tested and has been reviewed by the WordPress.org Accessibility team, passing the requirements listed on this page: https://make.wordpress.org/themes/handbook/review/accessibility/
It is important to note that I cannot guarantee that your website will be fully accessible.
The accessibility and usability of your website also depends on your content, but the theme follows the standards when it comes to contrast, text sizes, aria roles, skip links and more.
Changing the colors of the theme can affect accessibility.
Note: In version 2.0, the accessibility settings were moved from the Advanced Settings to it’s own setting in the customizer.
- Skip link: the theme has one skip link at the very top that lets you skip past the main menu.
If the Highligts feature are used, you skip to the first Highlight, otherwise you skip to the main content.
- In the customizer you can add personalized screen reader texts for your sidebar and footer.
- There is also an option to change the text displayed as UPPERCASE to Capitalized.
- Known issues:
- Some widgets that uses forms (category dropdown) are missing form labels. This is a known issue with WordPress.
- Menus have a visible focus and can be tabbed through, but you can not navigate them using the arrow keys.
