How to Fix the Problem
contentinfo landmark is not be contained in another landmark.
Text content should be contained within a landmark region, the
role="contentinfo" ARIA landmark should be used on an element that is outside of other landmarks used on the page, since footer information is generally separated from the header and main body content.
Why this is Important
The purpose of the
contentinfo landmark can be defeated when placed within another landmark, as it can prevent blind screen reader users from being able to quickly find and navigate to the appropriate landmark.
When screen reader users have to sort through too much extra information to find what they're looking for, such as not being able to quickly figure out which landmark contains the content information they're looking for negates the purpose of an existing
Contentinfo landmark must be at top level.
The Algorithm (in simple terms)
This rule finds the elements for the footer:not([role]) and [role="contentinfo"] selectors, then checks to see if the landmark has a body context.
