Customizable, Flexible, Adaptable, Powerful, Personal... Accessible.

The UserWay Accessibility Widget offers a broad selection of functions that users can mix and match to meet their individual accessibility needs. Each of the functions below can be turned on or off or set at an exact interim value. Settings for each user are automatically saved for future site visits, making your site's accessibility smart, effortless and effective.

Keyboard Navigation

The workhorse of UserWay's Accessibility Widget. Provides on-the-fly remediation of non-compliant elements into accessible, keyboard-navigable ones. Critical for those who rely on assistive tech.

Screen Reader

Text Size

Cycles on-screen texts through four different levels of text-size increases. Makes every part of your site instantly more readable.

Pause Animations

Pauses content that moves or auto-updates that is considered an accessibility barrier. Stops animations, blinking and flashing content that distracts and may trigger seizures.

Tooltips

Shows alternative text and aria labels for on-screen elements with a simple mouse hover. Tooltips are prominent, high contrast and easy to read for low-vision users with accessibility needs.

Dyslexia Font

UserWay's Proprietary Dyslexia Font enhances readability for those with dyslexia and provides an easier and more fluid reading experience that is tailored to site visitors with dyslexia.

Convert to Legible Fonts

Converts stylized fonts into legible fonts and font weights that are essential for visually impaired and dyslexic users who find nonstandard fonts confusing or difficult to read.

Highlight Links

Emphasize links, buttons and interactive elements in clear, high-contrast colors that are easy to identify. Highlights clickable items for easier site usability, navigation and overall accessibility.

Large Cursor

Increases the standard cursor size by 400% to ensure the pointer always remains in sight. Allows for faster and more accessible navigation through hyperlinks, tabs and form elements.

Reading Guide

Converts the cursor into a high contrast horizontal reading guide. Focuses and guides the eyes to reduce eye strain for users who are visually impaired, dyslexic, cognitively disabled, and users with Presbyopia.

Dark Mode

Light Mode

Invert Colors

Full color inversion for all site elements providing greater perceived color depth, making texts significantly easier to read while reducing eye strain for color blind and visually impaired users.

Text Spacing

Modify text and line spacing for improved readability for dyslexic and visually impaired users. Offers three degrees of adjustments for a personalized and more accessible reading experience.

Color Desaturation

Desaturates all colors on the page. An important accessibility function that helps users with deuteranopia, tritanopia, and other forms of color blindness to better distinguish your site’s content.

Inclusive Experiences for Absolutely Everyone

UserWay assists users that have varying degrees of visual impairment by enhancing their browsing experience to best meet their needs and physical limitations.

We do this by improving your site's support for keyboard-only navigation, as well as enabling users to independently increase the contrast of contents on your site, increasing the font size, switching to a more readable font face, using a larger cursor, highlighting links, desaturating content (removing color from text and images), and more, based on their personal disability and preference.
