Hello, I would like to know if the plugin is compatilble with WCAG 2.0 Level AA. I tested in the https://achecker.ca/checker/index.php and found mistakes.. Please answer me I want to buy this one but I want to be sure that my site wiill pass all the required tests in the acheker.ca

Thank yoy very much!

Hello George, WCAG is laying over four main principles that should drive a webpage creation: percievability, operability, understandability and robustness. Our plug-in manages the percievable part of the standards, going even further by providing accessibility tools for people with cognitive disorders. A full accessibility can be achieved by respecting all other principles. Still you have to provide a clear page and menu structure, ARIA elements, picture descriptions, video subtitling and many more others.

Excuse me you can add audio read?

Hey Matrix, Watool was not meant to incorporate a text-to-speech capability. There are certain reasons. Firstly – in order for a screen reader to work correctly, the page has to have a clean code and a well built structure, which both are outside of our control. Secondly – it is very much language dependent. We could not know what language would be required for each of the websites installing our plug-in.

Ok thanks logically and effectively

Hello, sorry for my bad English, I ask you my question again, I’m stuck. I use the plugin “SliderRevolution”. When I apply “Watool” the text of the slides is stretched vertically. Do you have a solution ? Thank you for this great plugin!

Hello, When activating the Watool plug-in, the CSS files are superseded, thus influencing the outlook of your slider. Except when activating the reading rulers – no change of the original pages is considered. You can send us a private message with the URL of your dev version of the website, so we can have a look, to make sure there is no conflict we can somehow manage.

Hello, The plug-in has been designed to have less text and more icons to allow a larger international user base. It has been specifically designed for WordPress. This might not exclude the installation on other platforms but there is no technical support provided for third parties CMSs and no guarantee it will work as intended. The plug-in works best for the functionalities already present, but do not exclude some other developments in the future. A text-to-speech capability is not considered for the moment.

Hi, just installed the plugin and the language the plugin shows is French :D How can I change the language??
