Bug Description

Currently, form errors are usually shown with a notification at the top of the page and specific errors beside each form element. For people using screen readers this is not optimal since the errors do not show up when tabbing through the page.
Either errors should be grouped in a list at the top of the page, or each explanation should be linked to the relevant input using aria-describedby.

Affects latest master (using Orca 3.4.2)
