Add an Aria-Label to the Divi Header Logo

|

When it comes to web accessibility, every detail counts, including properly labeling elements like the header logo of your Divi website. Adding an aria-label attribute helps screen readers understand the purpose of the logo, essentially communicating that it is a link that guides users to the home page. This is not only essential for a good user experience but it's also a step towards meeting web accessibility standards and ADA compliance.

Add an Aria Label to the Default Divi Header Logo using Divi Booster

Divi Booster includes the option to add an aria-label attribute to the logo. You enable it and set the label of your choice at:

Divi > Divi Booster > Site-wide Settings > Accessibility > Add "aria-label" attribute to logo

Like so:

This option is available in Divi Booster v4.4.9 onwards.

Add an Aria-Label to the Default Divi Header Logo using PHP

To add an aria-label using PHP to the logo in the default Divi header, add the following PHP code to your child theme's functions.php file (or using a plugin such as Code Snippets):

function add_aria_label_to_logo_container($logo_container) {
    $home_url = esc_url(home_url('/'));
    $labelled_logo_container = str_replace(
        '<a href="'.$home_url.'">',
        '<a href="'.$home_url.'" aria-label="Home Page">',
        $logo_container
    );
    return $labelled_logo_container;
}

add_filter('et_html_logo_container', 'add_aria_label_to_logo_container');

This code snippet will search for the anchor tag that includes the link to your homepage in the logo container's HTML. Then, it will add an aria-label attribute with the value "Home Page". All of this is done server-side by PHP, ensuring that the label is included in the initial HTML response sent to the browser.
