Issues with video, images and audio
- Some images do not have a meaningful text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information.
- Some images include text as part of the image, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information.
By September 2021, all images containing text will have a suitable text alternative to include the image text.
Issue with navigation, structure, links and keyboard operability
- Some links do not use text that is meaningful out of context, which can result in users of screen readers not being able to understand the link without reading the surrounding text and users of speech recognition software being less able to target links accurately using voice commands.

All links will be reviewed and fixed by September 2021
