>> 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,
