Accessibility notes

Script is designed to enhance the accessibility and usability of select-multiple inputs. If the script is not able to run, the default handling of the input will be used instead, which will depend on the browser. In browsers where it does not work correctly, the select-multiple input can still be used as normal, using keyboard/mouse combinations to select multiple items.
