Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the MyAccount website, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

Known limitations for MyAccount website:

  1. Toolbar
    • The slide-out toolbar may sometimes take focus without being visible, making it hard for users to navigate by a keyboard.
  2. User account dropdown
    • For users with multiple tenancies, it's possible for the account selector to reload the page automatically. This makes it difficult for users who rely on keyboard navigation.
  3. Dashboard
    • On mobile devices, it's difficult to view all dashboard summary panels.
    • Dashboard boxes have a hover effect without any clickable action. This may make it confusing for users.
  4. Repairs
    • Existing/previously booked repairs appear to be clickable, although no details load when clicked. This can be confusing for users.
    • While reporting a repair, it's difficult to navigate backwards in the breadcrumb navigation using browser controls. Some users may find it difficult to navigate.
