HTML Validation Software HTML code validation is an important part of ensuring ADA compliance of your website. All web pages must have complete start and end tags, be nested according to their specifications, not contain duplicate attributes, and IDs must be unique. To ensure ADA compliance, use our free html validation plugin to identify and correct validation errors in your pages. TinyMCE Advanced While not required to use the plugin it is advised that your website have several features turned on inside the Classic WordPress Editor, including tables, font size selection and the Format selector. These features may be enabled using a plugin called TinyMCE Advanced. There are other similar plugins that will provide the same features but TinyMCE Advanced has been thoroughly tested for compatibility with this plugin. After installing the TinyMCE Advanced plugin choose Settings > TinyMCE Advanced. In the “Unused Buttons” section drag the “Formats” button and place it in the desired location of your editor. Repeat this step for the “Font Sizes” option and “Tables’ option. Once complete, Choose “Save Changes” Broken Link Plugin There are several good broken link plugins. While we don’t recommend a particular one every website should use one to ensure all links are working correctly.

While the WP ADA Compliance Plugin will identify most issues that will commonly occur on your website it should be used along with the WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool and/or others tools to ensure complete compliance. Review of WCAG standards, use of screen reading software and some manual verification may also be required. The WAVE tool can be found as a link under the Web Accessibility heading on your WordPress dashboard. The WAVE tool may also be accessed from the page editor screen. Refer to the WordPress Editor Features section for details on where to find the WAVE feature in the page editor. Refer to the settings section to for information on how to enable or disable link to WAVE. Links to WAVE are provided for convenience only,  the WP ADA Compliance Plugin and AlumniOnline Web Services LLC are not affiliated with WAVE or WebAim in anyway. If for some reason the WAVE tool does not work on your website it is most likely because your web server is blocking the tool from viewing your website inside frames. Use your web browsers javascript console to confirm this and contact your host for assistance. Additional help can be found in the WAVE Help section.
