Improvements and fixes

  • Fixes the following issues:
    • When you use a screen reader, it doesn't tell you whether some fields are required on a project details page. Additionally, if a custom field is associated with a lookup table, the screen reader displays no context for that, and it doesn't tell you that there are lookup table values.
