Hey all,

Jennifer, I'm assuming by accessible share widget, you mean a set of links that enables a user to share a page via a social networking service.

I can't think of any plugins for this that I've tested. Usually when I need these, I just put them in the theme itself since they're simple links.

If may be worth pinging Joe Dolson on Twitter, as he's a bit more familiar with popular plugins.

Good luck!
