Known Issues

Screen reader users are unable to navigate the sub menu items on the home page when sequentially navigating (using gestures) through content. Therefore a user should utilise 'Explore by touch' on both iOS and android in order to select sub menu items, or select the top level heading such as ‘Planning’ in order to access these sub menu items.
