Bug Description

* Evergreen master

Bing SEO Analyzer reports as a "high severity" issue:

"""
There are multiple <h1> tags on the page.

Recommended Action:
Remove redundant <h1> tags from the page source, so that only one <h1> tag exists.
"""

It looks like the screenreader-only effort that added <h1>Catalog</h1> to the record details page has resulted in this conflicting with the <h1> that we use for the title of the record itself--and the latter should be the <h1> for the page.

Isn't having an <h1>Catalog</h1> for screen readers redundant given the <title> that we have for the page? And given that a screen reader is going to give hierarchical access to the page, don't we want the <h1> to be the title of the record itself so that they can jump there?
