    Dear Members,
    I hope it is appropriate to post this query here.
    I kindly request you to help me understand few of the accessibility
    related issues mentioned below.
    Whether these are treated as accessibility enhancement which would be
    helpful for the end user. Or accessibility violation.
    Heading order:
    Whether the following heading level is considered an accessibility
    violation? if yes, which criteria does this violate?
    The first heading level in the page is <h2> sample text </h2>
    The next heading level is <h5> sample text </h5>
    Landmark regions:
    When there are different content given inside two different aria
    region, with same aria label. Under which criteria this fails?
    <div role=”region” aria-label=”apple”>
    Apple related content goes here
    <div role=”region” aria-label=”apple”>
    Bannana related content goes here
    3. Links which open in a new window:
    When there is no indication for the screen reader users for the link
    which opens in a new window, is that considered an accessibility
    violation? If yes, which criteria does this issue violate?
    Thanks and Regards
