Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations 

Some images do not an aria label, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

Some of the frequently asked questions sections cannot be used via keyboard access. We plan to update this by December 2024.  

Some buttons are not descriptive enough and do not have visible headings. We plan to update this by June 2024.
