what is Readabler?
Readabler is a WordPress accessibility plugin that expands the boundaries of information accessibility for people with special portability. The availability of content for people with special needs or difficulties with information perception is the most important part of each site’s operation.
According to the World Health Organization research: globally, 1 billion people have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed.
These 1 billion people include those with moderate or severe distance vision impairment or blindness due to unaddressed refractive error (123.7 million), cataract (65.2 million), glaucoma (6.9 million), corneal opacities (4.2 million), diabetic retinopathy (3 million), and trachoma (2 million), as well as near vision impairment caused by unaddressed presbyopia (826 million).
The accessibility plugin for WordPress will make publications on your website accessible to people with perception problems, cognitive impairments, hearing or vision impairments.
Using the plugin settings, it is possible to choose a flexible set of settings and options that will be used on your site. Simultaneously, the plugin has 5 pre-installed profiles that will increase the accessibility of your site for people with Epilepsy, Visual Impaired, Cognitive Disability, ADHC, and also partially or completely blind.
One of the plugin’s main features is to improve the readability of text content. To solve this problem, the plugin has settings for scaling the entire page or only some types of test, for example, a heading or plain text. Also important for readability are the settings for increasing line and letter spacing, changing all texts’ alignment.
For people who find it difficult to read text written in calligraphic or sans fonts, the plugin provides a mode for changing the font on the entire site to readable or to a font for people who have Dyslexia.
Of course, an important part of any site is interaction with the page, for which the plugin provides modes for highlighting texts and titles and a magnifier that enlarges the text when you hover the mouse cursor over it.
For people with visual impairments, the plugin offers a set of settings to optimize the look of the entire page or individual elements on the page.
In addition to the usual brightness, saturation, and contrast controls, the plugin will make the website monochrome in black and white.
And the change in font and background colors makes available text unreadable or unnoticeable in normal mode and increases the accessibility of the content on the page.
Easy to orient WordPress Accessibility Plugin – Readabler
A large group of settings to improve WordPress Accessibility for people with disorientation. Readabler automatically parses the page at load time and generates a list of all page links. Some links go unnoticed or inaccessible for whatever reason.
One of the key settings in this group allows you to turn off anything that might flicker or flicker, such as videos, CSS animations, and animated GIFs.
Large black and white cursors are available in the plugin to facilitate mouse navigation. Several modes to improve subject selection on hover and focus, and a mode for controlling the page from the keyboard.
For those who can’t use the keyboard for test text input, we’ve added a full virtual keyboard to the plugin. This is a virtual keyboard on which you can enter text using actions such as a mouse or trackpad.
Text-to-speech WordPress Accessibility Plugin – Readabler
An important setting for the visually impaired is to recognize and sound the text on the page. Readabler uses the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence technology to play high-quality human voices. The basis of the Text-to-Speech recognition is the Google Cloud Platform, which ensures the reliability and speed of the plugin anywhere in the world.
The WordPress Readabler plugin converts text to human-like speech in over 240 voices across 40+ languages and variations. It applies groundbreaking research in speech synthesis (WaveNet) and Google’s powerful neural network to deliver high-fidelity audio.
All you need to do to hear text from the page is turn on the settings mode and select the text. Please note that Google may charge additional fees for using this option.
Online dictionary WordPress Accessibility Plugin – Readabler
For those who have memory problems or forget to define things and concepts, we have added Wikipedia to the plugin. To access Wikipedia’s vast knowledge base, you need to open the accessibility panel and write a word to clarify the meaning in the search field. In a few seconds, Wikipedia will display everything it knows about the thing or concept. And all this happens without leaving your site and the cozy atmosphere of accessibility that users have established for themselves.
