This page has been extensively rewritten. When Rian originally released this plugin, she did so to fill a gap left by WordPress and the Genesis Framework. Here’s how she originally finished this documentation page:
The best thing ever would be if this child theme and the plugin would become redundant. That would mean Genesis and WordPress would be fully accessible. Maybe one day. Until then the plugin and the child theme will be maintained and expanded if necessary. Suggestions are always welcome.
In Genesis 2.2 a lot of the accessibility functionality will be added into Genesis core. You can use this plugin to activate those features when version 2.2 is released. This plugin is already compatible with this new version.
The future is here.
Thanks in large part to Rian’s efforts, both with WordPress Core and the Genesis Framework, this plugin is most likely redundant. Nearly every Genesis child theme offered over the past few years has included Genesis’ accessibility support, most of which was written by Rian. If your theme already supports the Genesis accessibility features, you can quite likely remove this plugin from your site.
Not sure if your child theme includes accessibility support?
You can visit the StudioPress themes page, select “Accessibility Ready” from the “All Features” dropdown, and see if your theme is listed.
Alternatively, if you have the plugin installed, visit the plugin settings page (Genesis > Accessibility Settings). The plugin will tell you what Genesis accessibility features you already have enabled.
