 Currently the FAQ-Section in the plugin  directory are not accessible for
 various reasons.


 1. Questions don't have a semantic structure. They are just links at the
 2. with a click on the link, nothing happens for screen reader users
 3. aria-expandet is on the wrong element and don't announce anything to a
 screen reader user

 Suggested solutions:

 1. questions should be semantic headlines (H3 as FAQ is H2)
 2. those headlines should include a button-element to expand the section.
 Because it causes an action, it should be a Button, not a link
 3. this button should have an aria-expanded true/false, so it gets
 announced to an screen reader users

 Please also have a look on the buttons
