Hello,

If the tool is a HTML code, you can add that code to your website. Otherwise, Homestead does not have the option to add plug ins to the program.

There are several ada compliance tools available for your browser. I use the one available at
https://wave.webaim.org/.

Thanks I used your tool to diagnose the homestead website and as I feared, I am really really not compliant. I purchased a tool from https://accessibe.com/support/install... and I cannot figure out how to install the code on the homestead website.

What did they provide to you? A HTML code?

I visited the page you linked and have no idea of a solution as to how to install the purchased tool. I can tell you how I addressed the issue on one of my sites though.

I was able to achieve a 93% compliance score and that includes mobile pages on a site built using sitebuilder plus. My score would have been higher but I'm still searching for a script that will change the size of the font on the site that the visitor can control. I need something simple and robust with a few shape/size/color options built in. I also have an element on the site that's red-flagged but have no access to it. I asked homestead about it and was informed that they didn't have access to it ether. It's a 1x1 pixel image and I think it's part of the tracking/stats program. 

For the basic steps I took go to this thread.

A friend of mine has a dog walking/pet sitting website built using the newer websitebuilder software. We tried for a couple hours to get the website compliance score up from an under 50% score but were only able to achieve a 60-65% compliance rating with the information I was able to provide. Since then they've managed to get it up to over 80% but I'm not sure what they did. However they are still working on it.
