For a free plug-in, this is pretty good. I liked that I could turn on and off certain aspects in the control panel. I did enjoy that each option had a few settings beyond on or off, but I could not figure out some of the things like “Hard CSS.” I would have loved to understand what that meant? Do I upload another stylesheet? Where? I liked being able to re-name the toolbar. I like calling it “User Preferences” so it it less stigmatizing. I would have liked to change the person icon into a font-awesome icon or png/svg that I could upload. I kind of think that person icon is a bit stigmatizing myself. A sliders icon or paint pallet icon would be more inviting to see as a “customizer” for users who don’t identify as disabled. Turning off the Contrast option seemed to break the plug-in. I did not really want to use that option myself, I was thinking of doing a dark mode switch with more targeted CSS, but seeing as I can’t turn off this option in this plug-in, I guess I will have to roll with it. I do kind of wish the Increase font / decrease font had a + /-, and I could increase/decrease beyond just one font size iteration. I do kind of wish the user could change the “readable” font from a list, like Times new Roman, Helvetica, etc. I imagine some people have trouble with serifs, and some may need to see a serif. Letting the user choose seems best. I don’t think this plug-in should be listed as such an important item in the control panel UI. It even goes above WP Posts. I’d prefer to see this in the WP Settings, or at least underneath the WP Settings in options priorities. This is more like something you set and forget and does not need to be seen above the WP posts fly-out. I also enjoyed the name of the plug-in, it is a toolbar. Some plug-ins with similar features make it sound like the magic bullet to achieving WACG 2.1 AA. This is more of a supplement, Thank you.

Attention, ce plugin n’est plus mis à jour depuis plus d’un an, et semble ne plus fonctionner correctement depuis la MAJ vers WP 5.8 ! Les options ne fonctionnent plus du tout ! Please note, this plugin has not been updated for over a year, and seems to no longer work correctly from the update to WP 5.8 ! The options no longer work at all !

Bravo et surtout merci pour avoir pensé à ceux dont on parle peu ! L’ extension est magnifique de simplicité, d’efficacité et de fonctionnalité. Bien dommage par contre que cette extension ne soit pas mieux référencée. Encore merci pour cette action en faveur du web pour tous. JM Well done and above all thank you for having thought of those about which we speak little! The extension is magnificent in its simplicity, efficiency and functionality. A pity on the other hand that this extension is not better referenced. Thank you again for this action in favor of the web for all. (translation by google…)
