Make Your Website a Place for Everyone
Your website is more powerful when it’s designed for all, regardless of ability. With Wix, you can create a website with accessibility settings built right in, allowing any visitor to interact with it.
Web accessibility gives people with disabilities such as vision impairment, hearing loss or injury the opportunity to experience and interact with your website.
The Importance of Web Accessibility
After all, there are nearly 1 billion people in the world who rely on accessibility features to navigate the internet and access information. Making your site accessible shows that you value inclusion and diversity, helping enhance your brand while minimizing legal risk in countries that have laws requiring digital access for all.
Our Commitment to Accessibility
At Wix, we’re committed to making the web a place for everyone by providing you with all the tools you need to create a professional website that’s accessible to all.
Wix’s accessibility features comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0), the highest global standards.
Accessibility Tools for Your Website
Discover the assistive settings that are automatically enabled for you when you create a professional Wix website.
Full Keyboard Functionality
From small buttons to comprehensive online stores, all Wix products are fully operable with a keyboard.
Automatic DOM Order
Automatic DOM order allows you to design your site in any order using drag and drop elements. The DOM (document object model) is then automatically arranged so visitors who rely on a keyboard and screen readers can navigate your site.
Every component you add to your Wix site comes with the correct semantics built in, making it easier for people with disabilities to understand your content.
Site Language Definition
Your site is automatically rendered with the correct language so screen readers can understand your content.
Smart Focus Ring
Visual indicators help keyboard users navigate your site. Smart focus rings automatically appear when a keyboard is being used and feature dual colors so they’re always visible, no matter the site’s background color.
Built-in aria attributes provide enriched accessible user experience. In addition, you can add custom attributes to apps and components you build on your own.
Heading tags help users who use screen readers understand how your site is organized in order to present the content. This also improves your site’s SEO.
Textual descriptions of images known as alt text, to help visually impaired users better understand the context of the photos on your website. Add them easily to any image.
Dozens of designer-made templates with accessibility features built in bring your dreams to life and make your website available to all.
