Accessibility: About the Accessibility Wizard
3 min read
Use the Accessibility Wizard to identify and fix accessibility issues on your site. This tool offered by Wix scans your site and provides actionable solutions to make your site accessible to all - including those with disabilities and impairments.
While Wix is always striving to improve our products and services, we cannot guarantee that your site will be compliant with your region's accessibility laws and regulations after using the Wizard. We recommend consulting an accessibility expert to ensure that your site is meeting the standards for your region.

Automatic scanning in the Wizard
Once you open the Accessibility Wizard, you are prompted to allow the Wizard to scan your site. This scan may take a few minutes.
The Wizard then highlights what it has found. It does this by searching through your site for components or settings that may cause issues, such as color contrast and heading definition.
This step is a great way to get started on making your site accessible, and can make a big difference to your site visitors. Learn how to scan your site with the Wizard
After you have completed the automatic section of the Wizard, you are shown a list of things to keep in mind and adjust on your site.
The Wizard highlights areas on your site to review and correct. You can see detailed guidelines on how to adjust the relevant elements and settings.
We recommend going through this section step by step, as it's a great opportunity to manually check your site for any potential issues.
Advanced accessibility settings
To further improve your site's accessibility, the Wizard points you to helpful settings you should enable. After completing the steps in the Wizard, we recommend enabling these settings to ensure your site is as accessible as possible.
To enable the advanced accessibility settings:
- Open the Accessibility Wizard.
- Select the More actions icon .
- Select Advanced accessibility settings.
- Go through the settings and enable them as needed:
- Visual indicators: When this setting is enabled, a blue indicator appears around the shift in focus. Visitors can move to different elements by pressing the tab key.
- Skip to main content: This setting lets keyboard users skip directly to the main content of each page when enabled.
- Automatic DOM order: Enabling an automatic DOM order means your content is automatically organized by the visual order of elements.
- Accessibility dev tools: Enabling this toggle exposes advanced accessibility settings that you can adjust, such as ARIA labels and tabindex.
