Meet Our New Accessibility Plugin

As we all know, the Web is an increasingly important source in many aspects of life: education, employment, commerce, government, health care, recreation and more.  As a result, it is essential that the Web provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities.  Currently most Web sites and Web software have accessibility barriers that make it difficult and sometimes even impossible for many people with disabilities to use the Web.  But an accessible Web can help people with disabilities become more active in society.

Pojo.me is proud to announce their latest Accessibility plugin.  Since much of the focus on Web accessibility has been on the responsibilities of Web developers, this plugin will facilitate developers to produce and evaluate accessible Web sites, and be usable by people with disabilities.

After many trials with various websites, we have successfully created an accessibility plugin for Pojo users to easily design websites which provides many special features that will suit the needs of the masses.  Below is a list of the details of the special features.  We encourage you to take a closer look and enjoy all the perks of our plugin for your convience.
