Very nice plugin, easy to use. I needed some help with customization and they helped me immediately. Recommend it.

So I have a gallery of web pages that all have the same accessibility score through lighthouse on Chrome... this one page dropped by 20 points to 69 due to the plugin. For a lot of folks, it probably won't matter much to them, but in my case it does. For that score alone, I have to give it one star. Hopefully, that issue will be resolved.
