Page has duplicate IDs Accessibility Checkpoint


This page has duplicate IDs which cause problems in screen readers.


Two or more elements on this page share the same ID, which cause problems in screen readers which use IDs for labeling controls and table headings. This also causes problems in JavaScript methods like getElementById and querySelector, which behave inconsistently when duplicate IDs are present. Change the ID so it is unique for each element.

Applicable standards

Note: Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level A and level AA checkpoints.
