Accessibility features

Billie is an accessibility-ready WordPress Theme that has been carefully reviewed by the WordPress.org Theme Review Team. You can find the requirements for accessible themes here:


Accessibility features include:

  • Skip to content link. This link lets you skip the header and the menu and go directly to the content.
  • Color contrast. The default colors has a contrast ratio that passes the requirements of WCAG 2.0 level AA.
  • Semantic heading levels. No heading levels are skipped. Every page has one H1 heading.
  • Aria roles and labels. All elements are inside an aria role. Aria labels are added when a page has more than one role of the same kind.
  • Accessible controls. All controls, such as the menu toggles, are accessible for screen-readers and by keyboard.
  • Visible focus. All focusable elements have a visible outline when selected. Including links, controls and form inputs.
  • Zoom. Elements are accessible also when zoomed in. Text size is changed accordingly.
  • Links. Links in content and in comment content are underlined.
  • Image Alt texts. Images will display alt texts if one has been added in the media library or in the block editor. Icons are added using CSS.

Theme features

Billie is a beautiful accessible WordPress theme. It can be used for any type of website, but is designed for blogs and portfolios.

The theme has two option menus, including a social menu, several different widget panels, and a footer widget are that will hold any number of widgets.

The theme is compatible with the block editor, and also includes a Call to Action button and two page sections that you can combine with your front page.

I recommend that you install the Jetpack plugin to make full use of supported features like featured content, contact forms, testimonials, social sharing and more.

To create a portfolio, install jetpack and create your projects. All the templates are already shipped with the theme.

Billie also works well with WooCommerce.
