We’re being asked about the seeming absense of GUI-ish way of turning text into a headline tag. The question comes from the perspective of trying to make the emails more accessible for screen readers. Are we missing the feature, is custom html the only way to do it right now (something we’d want users to not need to do), are there plans to implement it in the text edit bar….?
Yes, currently the only way is via the HTML block, but we’re starting to work on accessbility now. Please feel free to open a ticket and check back with us in a few weeks, and we can probably provide more details. However, I want to mention that you could use Custom or Saved Rows to pre-build header blocks and provide them to users via the Rows tab. By this method, the end users doesn’t need to code any HTML.
any news on this one? Proper html headers is one of the very few things I’m desperately missing in the bee editor…
I understand the solution above, but the price tag on the plugin silver version is a bit too hefty for just this one thing (I’m happy with the startup set of features otherwise).
Is there maybe an option to include the format buttons in TinyMCE? Then I could just add normal text blocks, and mark them as headings with the text editing tool.
We are currently making a lot of improvements with accessibility. First, we’re improving the HTML output for existing features. Next, I believe, there will be some developments in regard to headers. There has been a lot of progress on the first part since my last post, but we haven’t started the second phase yet.
thank you for your quick answer. I’m glad this is being worked on.
Is there an ETA on when headings might become available? A very rough indication is good enough – like two weeks, two months, half a year, …
It would be at least a few months as we are working on a new version that improves performance and text editing, then this would be built on the new version.
Any more recent update on this? We’re getting hammered by one customer who is particularly keen on accessible email messages.
