Hi Heidi,

Are you referring to the card-like UI elements in which there is the text
"Our Research", followed by a passage of text, followed by a "Learn about
our research" that all have separate hyperlinks that go to the same

It appears these are all three separate "tab-stops" for the same element
that would also include a very wordy second hyperlink, which is the passage
of text content.

Check out the article by Heydon Pickering on Cards (
https://inclusive-components.design/cards/). It would require some
developer engagement, but I believe it will resolve the issue you have

Take care,
