We have tested the initial pop up and the other main pop up if a user wants to make more choices and all the elements can be tabbed through via the keyboard There is an issue with the ‘X’ on the main pop up which has been highlighted with the supplier but the box can be closed by using the save button.
WCAG 2.4.7 Focus visible
A visible focus helps users know which element has keyboard focus and where they are on the page.
When an element gets focus there should be a visible border around it. Highlighting the element that has keyboard focus or is hovered over can provide information like whether the element is interactive or the scope of that element.
Operating systems have a native indication of focus, which is available in many browsers. The default display of the focus indicator is not always highly visible and may even be difficult to see especially on coloured backgrounds.
This is on all webpages
• Focus is not clear on privacy settings button in the right hand bottom corner
This is a known issue and is currently being investigated by the supplier

All link names should be accessible by a screen reader and be descriptive enough to tell a user where that link will take them. Common issues include:
