Not only does this plugin make your site less accessible, but it will cause major performance issues and ruin the typography on your site.

<!– wp:paragraph –> <p>It used to work great. Latest update broke with latest versions of WordPress and Elementor Pro. Only shows a white circle now and also changes phone numbers on the website into links. I don’t need it to do that because I already privacy code to protect phone numbers from bots. It needs better customization. Maybe that is only available on the paid version.</p> <!– /wp:paragraph –> <!– wp:paragraph –> <p>UPDATE: Works well again. Thank you!</p> <!– /wp:paragraph –>

I’m experiencing the same issue as user ‘mbstephenson2000’. After working well for months, the accessibility icon turned into a white circle and the functionality stopped working. This is what I can find inspecting the element: “Event.path is deprecated and will be removed. Please use Event.composedPath() instead. AFFECTED RESOURCES” I hope someone can have a look at this to come up with a fix. Cheers,Tom

These little tools are not solutions to ensuring a website is ADA Compliant. However, this is an excellent tool to help resolve minor issues, offer a proactive solution and fill the void that some website’s are unable to do. I have used a few plugins for this and I believe this one is the most complaint, or rather, meets needs much better than others.

This plugin is so easy to use. Works great out the box and offers per element controls! Love it.
