Repetitive or Unnecessary Navigation Required Before Main Content

Archived Issue

Current Iteration of Issue

Short Description

Main content is hidden behind extraneous content

Long Description

  • When navigating from one page to another, the new page contains the same information from the previous page.
  • This makes the user think that they have not gone to the intended location.
  • A screen reader or magnifier user only knows the content at the current cursor location, this means that the user might not realize they have been placed in a new window until they navigate to the new content. Having to navigate through repetitive content is tedious.
