Known accessibility issues and areas for improvement

While we strive to ensure that this resource is as accessible and usable as possible, we might not always get it right. Any issues we identify will be listed below. There are currently no known issues.

  • The matrix in Appendix A uses merged cells which but they have been structured to work properly with screen readers.
