As an expert on web accessibility at EWU, I’m frequently asked to assess the front-end of third-party libraries, applications, web apps, etc. for accessibility at EWU. My latest endeavor was to identify and resolve issues with our newly installed Beaver Builder WordPress plugin.
On my first check, I found that with the default settings of the modules with navigation elements were missing text which gives users an idea of how the link is used.
In order to continue offering these features, I need to ensure that these navigation elements were accessible. For each of these modules, I created new version with link text included. Below is a sample of the resulting HTML with a screenshot of the Testimonial module.
<a class="bx-next" href="">
Once I resolved the underlying issue for both this module and the slideshow module, a sight impaired visitor can now understand the purpose of these links from the content within them.
Further work is needed around the settings of other modules with similar navigation elements.
