Some images in some of the case stories of claims are missing text alternatives or an indication that the image is for decorative purposes only.

Accordion menu elements: Accordion menu elements are missing active controls (a, button), causing screen readers to interpret and read them as text elements. Keyboard focus can be moved to accordion menus (tabindex attribute), but their function and status are not clear to the user. The arrow icon is read according to the icon’s name (“keyboard_arrow_down”).

HTML code quality: The service’s HTML code contains sections that do not comply with standards. There are non-compliances in at least the following areas: accepted element attributes, accepted attribute values and missing attributes.
