Hello,

One of my clients is requesting that I include a "functionality"  on a WordPress site... he needs the site to be "blind-friendly"... I mean, that site is functional to blind people.

I need an expert recommendation as to what plugin to use or how to best approach this.

Please, this matter is urgent. Kindest regards.

This is not something you handle directly or with a plugin.  The vision impaired users already have assistive technology to read the page out loud.  Your job is to make a site that is easily accessible by these technologies.

To make a site accessible you need to make sure the HTML is properly formatted and every page validates against the W3C specs.  This includes using the alt attribute for all images, designing a simpler, less graphics-oriented page that flows semantically from the header to navigation to content.

Start your research here:
