Accessibility spring provides instruments that make your site more accessible for people with the visually impaired. You can in a simple way configure the view of the sidebar depending on the design of the site.
Upload the plugin files to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
Use the Accessibility Spring menu item in the WordPress sidebar to configure the plugin.
If you do not enable, at least, one option in the Accessibility Spring menu – your sidebar on the site will be empty.
I will be very grateful if you give me feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just a few words, and we can make the world better.

Contributors & Developers
“Accessibility spring” is open source software. The following people have contributed to this plugin.Contributors
- Checked compatibility with WordPress 5.9.3
- Fixed reset font-size functionality
- Sidebar container is “sticky” by default
- Removed “Change page size” option
- Icon and sidebar corners are rounded a little by default
- Fixed code that causes notices
- Fixed bug when all text on-site became unreadable, while the plugin is activated.
It happened on sites, that haven’t declared charset explicitly. Now, plugin set charset to UTF-8.
- Added possibility to scale page.
I know (and some people wrote me about that), that functionality for changing font size works incorrectly.
In fact, that works correctly, but only if you are using CSS REM or EM units (instead of pixels).
Accessibility spring just changing the font size of element.
After research, I found a universal solution, and implement that in my plugin. Now, you can choose an approach that works better in your case – “Option to change font size” or “Option to scale page”. But I am still finding the best practice, and I hope that I will find the most universal solution for changing the size of text, even when your site is written with px, vh, %, pt, etc.
