VM 3 template accessiblility ready according to WCAG 2.0
« on: June 09, 2016, 16:39:01 pm »
Hi all!

I am wondering, whether there exist VM 3 templates, which are accessiblility ready according to WCAG 2.0 (https://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-WCAG20-20081211/).
Does anyone know of such templates existing or being in work process?

Kind regards,
Gerald

Boostrap 3, follow some rules and some Joomla template framework use bootstrap 3 as base.
Too meet WGA colors Contrast , you need to do it yourself, because most time, this give poor result on design.
Here some more info about bootstrap 3 and WGA and the accessible javascript plugin(done by paypal) : https://www.sitepoint.com/making-bootstrap-accessible/.
I worked a little with a french (Frédéric Chamsseddine) to do VM full accessible in 2012, but i had no news from him after, so currently, i think accessibility is not priority in Virtuemart but some implementation are here.
I use myself a simple trick, on demand to go to main content <a class="textreader" href="#main" title="Go to content">Main content</a> for eg.
Implementation is not very complicate, but need many work.

You have to modify a template to do it accessible.
Perhaps a template exist, but it's hard to implement all accessibility guidelines
