How to Fix the Problem

Remove the ARIA attribute or use a different ARIA attribute according to the specification.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

The engine is searching for ARIA attributes that do not match the associated role. For example aria-checked=“true” cannot be used on an image element

Why Is it Important?

Assistive tools, such as screen readers will fail to announce the proper use of the element
