WCAG Accessible Forms + A11Y Compliance

Get Formidable Forms

How accessible are your WordPress forms? Are they ADA compliant?

Website accessibility is extremely important. The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against disabled individuals.

Can your WordPress forms serve the visually impaired? Are your forms screen-reader friendly? If you don't know, your WordPress site may not be fully accessible.

When it comes to ADA standards, WCAG and A11Y in website forms, Formidable is an industry leader. Our WCAG forms produce zero errors when compared to the other leading form builder plugins. Formidable Forms help build truly accessible websites - down to the last field label.

WCAG accessible forms are included in the core Formidable Forms plugin.

What is web accessibility?

Your websites and online tools must be designed with disabled individuals in mind. An accessible website considers all kinds of differently-abled people. This includes people with cognitive, physical, speech, auditory and visual impairments.

Are your forms WCAG compliant?

The principles of accessibility also apply to:

    • Websites visited by elderly people
    • Mobile responsiveness & devices with smaller screens
    • Website visitors with slower Internet connection speeds

There are lots of people who could feel alienated by a website that isn't accessible.

That's why we have Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) in place to ensure that every visitor can access a Formidable Forms website.

WCAG is a set of guidelines that applies to anyone involved in online content, tools or web design. They cover a range of different requirements such as HTML, visual and audio elements to make it more user-friendly for everyone.

Making your website and online forms accessible to all isn't just common courtesy. It also makes great business sense. The most people your website caters to, the better!

When using Formidable forms, you won't need to download any extra add-ons or plugins.

Formidable is WCAG accessible right out of the box. Our forms always:

✔ Function easily with screen readers
