    The Black Art Depot is not compatible with:

    • Duplicate ID - the same ID is used on more than one element
      • This is related to the "stamped-reviews-widget" and actually not affecting accessibility in any way, even as per WCAG 2.2 AA this is not an issue because guideline 4.1.1 is deprecated.
    • Each element must contain text or an image with an alt attribute.
    • Removing the underline from links makes it hard for color-blind users to see them
      • This is also related to the "stamped-reviews-widget" and dynamically generating from the app.
    • No space between attributes.
    • Quote " in the attribute name. Probable cause: A matching quote missing somewhere earlier.
      • This is not an issue, this seems to be an incorrect evaluation of the tool because the HTML is correct on the page, also as per WCAG 2.2 AA this is not an issue because guideline 4.1.1 is deprecated.
    • The visual label must appear in the accessible name of links and controls
      • This is related to the Pinterest app.
