Hi Steve,

Indeed, the links did unintentionally break in the transition to WCAG 
2.1 – I have just uploaded a fixed version of the tool. You might need 
to flush your cache to make it work.

We’re committed to keeping links working as much as possible, and this 
is no exception.

(I’m aware that the scrolling position seems to be a little bit off in 
certain circumstances and I’m working to fixing that as well.)

Best,
Eric
