No problem, Thank you for adding the context, this is really helpful. I can take care of these tasks.

They are relatively severe for users of assistive technologies - because there's no label or the incorrect label, it makes it hard to tell what's selected when you've got a video playing for some users, which resulted in our customer's tester getting frustrated with the video player.

Ideally (if possible) it'd be good to see this fixed on your end, as you guys have more experience with accessibility than our developers, and while it seems to me that they're both relatively simple fixes, I want to make sure it's done properly, quickly, and doesn't get lost in our backlog. If that's not possible, I can try and get it into our workload, but it's likely not going to happen as rapidly as it needs to.

What is the severity and timeline on these tickets? Is it something you have created for Sustaining team or you have a team who will be working on this?
