Meet Kayosey: the first AAA, full-accessible and full-responsive theme/framework for WordPress

Kayosey is a base theme for WordPress, fully accessible and adaptable, ready to fulfill the AAA level and serve as a solid foundation for the development of other themes.

Why Kayosey?

What is accessibility? 

Although the situation has improved dramatically in the last two years, users of screen readers still have many difficulties to interpret the webs, which often include elements that are absolutely useless for them and screen readers also read.

Using microformats and HTML5 is also undervalued on the web, when their use can and should provide useful information for users of screen readers information.

Our goal is to create the first fully accessible, upgradeable and adaptable to all devices theme for WordPress. WordPress is making great efforts in accessibility, but our experience as developers tell us that if you want to make something work, you need to be 100% working in accomplish this work. 

Backed by our experience as developers and knowing that, we want to raise some money to take a break of our daily work and be working 100% in making the first 100% accesible parent theme for WordPress. 

ACT: We have been reading comments in WPTavern and we are in line with the people commenting there: it makes more sense to do a stater theme based in _s than making a parent theme. A starter theme will be more useful for developers than a parent theme. So, ideas are welcome! Starter theme, here we go!

Why WordPress

Today, 24% of the web works with WordPress, being the most used CMS by developers (http://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/content_management/all). An accessible parent theme for WordPress will virtually make 1/4 of the web accessible

And why you?

We are a group of 4 who have been working together for more than a decade and have been working with WordPress for more than 8 years. We know the WordPress core, and how it works. 

We don't want to re-do the work already done. WordPress has a great accessibility team and our goal is to work with them to help them achieve all the WordPress standards too. We'll make our theme, we'll work with the a11y team, and we'll suggest the changes to the WordPress core necessary to make WordPress 100% accessible.  

They are people already working with accessibility, but now we have the time and the energy to make a great parent theme. ACT: Not parent theme. Starter theme!

Which is the License of Kayosey?

We are talking about WordPress. Our theme will be totally free, 100% GPL v2 or later, and available on the official WordPress repository for anyone to use.

What is Pixelated Heart

In Pixelated Heart we believe that technology should serve people and provide effective easier solutions for our day to day. Our motto is make tech more human, and we try to provide technological solutions to make life easier.

What will happen if you raise the money?

Our first goal is to achieve 6,000 €. If we have more, this is our plan and our commitment:

  • € 6,000 - GOAL! We will make a 100%-a11y WordPress starter theme! 
  • € 12,000 - More than a theme - We will create Kayosey Framework, the first accessible framework, full of options to make the development easier. We want everyone to be allowed to change the behavior of their web. Everyone. 
  • € 20,000 - We will make Kayosey reach the next level: WooCommerce compatibility! Everyone should be able to make a shop with WordPress without external help.  

Don't be afraid to support this project! If we do not reach the minimum, all the money will be returned to your account. And if we reach our goal, you'll have a 100% accessible and responsive WordPress theme soon.
