I’ve searched around and couldn’t find any info as to the current state of the built-in
accessibility features…particularly for the blind and visually impaired…
I am using:
GP Premium 1.7.1
My site fully functioning well yet in staging…will be addressing the ‘skip to’ links soon.
Any info/update you can provide is appreciated!

The theme itself should be fully accessible to the blind/visually impaired.
We have screen reader elements where necessary, and everything can be navigated using the tab key on your keyboard.
There’s a couple small issues we’re working on when it comes to the main menu and screen readers which we’ll have fixed in GP 2.2.
Are you running into any specific issues?August 18, 2018 at 6:23 am #652631Jean-Paul
Thank you… I am not having any specific issue at this time…just starting to address accessibility,
wanted to find out what was built in… glad to hear it is fully accessible out of the box!
Look forward to GP 2.2

When it comes to Lighthouse, I definitely suggest lazy loading your images, and making sure your server (hosting) is fast.August 18, 2018 at 8:00 pm #653168Jean-Paul
There is ZERO doubt, GP is the best, lightweight and secure theme out there. I did my homework and I am very happy with it!
…I was trying to express my doubt using the emulator, as a ‘be-all’…as my webpage loads just as fast as the rest I see on my cell… So, I was confused about that rating…but quite frankly didn’t believe it.
UPDATE: Since that initial test…I found some very embarrassingly basic things I didn’t catch in my ‘structure’ and corrected them (everything’s going green). Opps, I’m Def Not a pro. Thanks for your feedback.
Never thought it was the theme! 🙂
