In this article, we will cover:


It is our goal to make TINT accessible to all users of the web and to comply with all accessibility best practices.  We use ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) to make our UGC more accessible to people with disabilities.

The following themes are regularly audited for accessibility:

  • Classic
  • Testimonials
  • Artsy
  • Square Photo
  • News
  • Horizontal Slider
  • Tall Photo
  • Grid

To audit our accessibility and compliance with WCAG and WAI-ARIA, we use an open-source, automated tool called Lighthouse. All of the themes listed above score 90% or higher using this tool. Lighthouse tests for the following:

  • Elements Have Discernable Names
  • Color Contrast is Satisfactory
  • Elements Use Attributes Correctly
  • ARIA Attributes Follow Best Practices
  • Elements Have Discernable Names
  • Elements Are Well Structured
  • Page Specifes Valid Language
  • Meta Tags Used Properly

How to change the title for Web Embeds and Signage

You can also change the title that a speech reader reads out for our TINT boards when being displayed on Web Embeds and via the URL for Signage.

Web Embed

As standard, it will say Social Feed but change this in your web embed, insert the following parameter: data-embed-title="test"

For example: 

<script async src=''></script>
<div class="tintup" data-id="article_board" data-columns="" data-expand="true" style="height: 500px; width: 100%;" data-personalization-id="1095531" data-infinitescroll="true" data-embed-title="test" ></div>
