The solution I put forward is only a workaround to a real problem and it is only a solution if you know in advance what the problem and the solution are. You are right, the website should get its act together but the simple solution would be an old-fashioned accessible popup dialogue which presents the same control as the form which appears at the foot of the page. Such a dialogue would grab screen reader focus.

Thanks, Paul. That will be very useful to some, but it shouldn't
require what looks like quite a bit of work to figure out, and a 650
word essay just to explain how to use it.

Not criticising you of course as you have been very helpful figuring
it out. But when accessibility is really quite easy to add to sites
these days, a large and expensive national site like this really
shouldn't be failing over 90% of not only all the accessibility
checks, but also a very large number of basic web standards.
