At this time, our themes are not guaranteed to be fully compatible with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) or W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) regulations or standards.
Shopify has announced upcoming efforts to improve accessibility throughout the entire platform, including themes. When these requirements are released, we will be required to update our themes to support these directives. As of now, Shopify has provided tentative requirements for 2021, though this is subject to change.
Regardless of these requirements though, there are many things that users of our themes will be responsible for in order to ensure an accessible site.
