Accessibility and usability barriers 

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

Forms rely on ARIA tags for element labels 

The labels for all of the form elements are associated with the elements through ARIA tags instead of HTML tags. Relying so heavily on ARIA tagging makes the platform susceptible to accessibility barriers upon updates and can inadvertently overwrite HTML semantics that support accessibility. 

Small text and UI elements may cause barriers for users with low vision

The default text size is very small, and some characters like the asterisk used to denote required fields do not consistently scale up when the interface is magnified.
