Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
The following items do not comply with the WCAG 2.1 success criteria:
Guideline 1.1 text alternatives
1.1.1 Non-text Content (A)

Guideline 1.3 adaptable
1.3.1 Information & Relationships (A)
Information and relationships, such as the capacity management table, are conveyed via visual styling alone and are not programmatically determinable. Users may find that there is a lack of structural information, context and relationships within the data.
Some pages have no landmarks to indicate where the main page content begins. Additionally, the purpose of headings acting as captions for other headings may not be presented to screen reader users.
Some visible labels are not programmatically associated with corresponding components. Voice activation users may be unable to reference these components by name and screen reader users will encounter these as ‘unlabelled’ controls.
Form controls may not have the correct semantic grouping. Users may find form groups without labels and accessible names.
Guideline 1.4 distinguishable
1.4.10 Reflow (AA)
Users may find that some content cannot be magnified without loss of information or functionality.
Guideline 2.1 keyboard accessible
2.1.1 Keyboard (A)

Users may encounter session time limits at multiple stages.
Guideline 2.4 navigable
2.4.2 Page Titled (A)

Focusable components do not receive focus in an order that preserves meaning and operability. Users may find that focus lands on the main page content rather than the top of the page.
2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context) (A)
There are multiple links with the same link text. Users may find they are unable to determine the purpose of these links, together with the programmatically determined link context.
Guideline 3.3 input assistance

Some components do not have visible labels or accessible names to help users identify the purpose of components or reference them by name. Voice activation users will not be able to reference these components to their assistive technology by name.
Guideline 4.1 compatible
4.1.2 Name, Role, Value (A)
Custom components lack an accessible role and are hidden from assistive technology. Keyboard users may find they are unable to operate these components. Voice activation users will be unable to reference these components by name or role to their assistive technology.
