WP Accessibility version 2.1.0 has just been released, and it includes a major new feature: statistics collection. WP Accessibility does a lot of different things: automated repair to issues on your site, a toolbar with high contrast or font size toggles, and controls to make alt text and descriptions visible for your images.
