Accessibility and usability barriers 

The following information is provided to help people with disabilities know what potential barriers may exist and to help people who support them.

Screen reader barriers limit accessibility for individuals using screen readers, such as people who are blind.

The app has orphaned and broken ARIA references, including form labels. Some pages have skipped headings. Some buttons on the form lack appropriate context or specific descriptions and navigation for a screen reader user to use well.  

Some keyboard navigation barriers exist, creating barriers for some users, such as people with motor disabilities.

Some keyboard focus indicators are missing a top, bottom, left, or right side. Some keyboard focus indicators do not have strong contrast, which makes it difficult to follow the keyboard navigation.

Magnification and reflow barriers exist, creating barriers for people with low vision.

At 300% and higher magnification, the top app bar and the footer overwhelm the viewport, making it difficult to read. At 400%, not all menu items in the dropdown menu can be read.

Some contrast barriers exist, creating barriers for people with low vision or who are color blind.

Some buttons, selected menu items, and keyboard focus indicators lack strong contrast, making it difficult to read.
