UserWay accessibility widget installed

I came across this excellent little widget for my website to help accessibility: userway.org

Please give it a try and let me know how it works: It’s a wheelchair user button on the right hand side of the screen – just tap/click it!

If you are interested in installing it onto your WordPress site you might want to download another widget that allows you to insert the code needed for UserWay: “Insert Headers and Footers“.

Any feedback welcome, I look forward to hearing from you!
