Ready to use WCAG compliant website
DJ-University is a ready-to-use Joomla and WordPress portal, comprehensive WCAG-compliant, and working with YOOtheme Pro web builder. It's purposed for schools and universities but suits well for any public institution.
It contains all the functions necessary to create an accessible website that complies with the WCAG standard and is extremely easy to manage, thanks to the Yootheme website builder.
If you need to follow the requirements to have a WCAG-compliant website (or want to allow users to access the complete information on the site), this solution is the right choice. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines set standards and guidelines for web accessibility, and they mainly concern older people and people with disabilities for whom existing solutions were not accessible.
Under accessibility legislation, public institutions are required to use WCAG templates. However, the use of such templates also makes sense for commercial companies, as making a website accessible to people with disabilities significantly improves its usability and quality and additionally helps to improve a website's SEO.
The WCAG template is a ready-to-use website based on the YOOtheme Pro web builder. You need to install the quickstart, add the necessary information, and launch the web page. Build your WCAG website in minutes!
DJ-University comes with two accessibility tools created to improve the accessibility of your Joomla or WordPress-based website.
It’s a WCAG plugin that provides many options to improve the accessibility of your Joomla or WordPress-based website. You can display accessibility options in a pop-up or a toolbar.
Accessibility options pop up - a clear pup-up panel with all the settings. Use the default button design or replace it with the image of your choice.
Accessibility options toolbar - show accessibility options in the modern and transparent toolbar. Decide where to place it on the site. It can be delivered at the top of the page, on its sides, or at the bottom.
This plugin adds an aria-label for 12 yootheme elements (button, grid, icon, overlay-slider, pagination, panel, panel-slider, popover, slideshow, social, switcher, to top).
It comes only with this quickstart and is purposed to improve Yootheme elements and achieve WCAG AA level compliance.
