      Description

      The entire markup for many question types as delivered in Test and Quizzes are the child of the level 5 heading that starts at the question number text. This might have been an accident, but if it was done to make the entire question appear in bold font it is inappropriate.

      Some adaptive technologies include all of the child text as the heading; this means the JavaScript code that appears in the child script elements is also announced (see TQHeadingsListExample.png (attached)). Also, as the screen-reader user navigates through the parts of the question, each part is announced as a level 5 heading which is very distracting and adds to the chatter that they have to tune out when trying to decide what is the real content they need to pay attention to.

      Suggestion:

      Only have the "Question x of y d.dd Points" part be the level 5 heading that precedes the question text. Use CSS as appropriate to keep the existing bold font styling.
