Accessibly App Features

When Accessibly App is installed on a website, users can navigate the site using keyboard controls, specifically the "tab" key (WCAG 2.1/2.1.1). Additionally, we provide a range of features and tools to enhance the browsing experience. These include:

Zoom (WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.4): Allows users to increase the text size up to three times the original for improved readability.

Bigger Cursor: Enlarges the cursor, making it more visible and facilitating site navigation.

Invert Colors: Reverses the color scheme of website content. This high-contrast option significantly aids individuals with visual impairments in reading the site's content.

Tweak Contrast (WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6): Enables users to manually adjust the contrast of the website, providing options to enhance or reduce the contrast.

Tweak Brightness (WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6): Allows users to modify the brightness of the site's content, making it either brighter or darker.

Grayscale (WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6): Enables users to view website content in grayscale, displaying shades of gray only. This feature benefits individuals with visual impairments.

Reading Line: Adds a helpful reading line to the website to facilitate reading and improve focus.

Readable Fonts: Converts on-site fonts to easily readable fonts such as Helvetica, enhancing legibility.

Alt Text and Images: Enables the reading of alt text associated with images. Our tool also generates alt descriptions for images without them, utilizing Google's Vision AI. This feature greatly assists individuals with visual impairments in navigating your site, particularly if alt text has not been manually provided.

Tooltips (WCAG 2.1 / 2.5.3): Includes descriptive labels for images, providing written descriptions of the visual content.

Highlight Links: Emphasizes links to enhance their visibility and ensure ease of use.
