      Description

      MDL-56431 added basic accessibility to the messaging page, but it would be nice to add the following:

      • A link to skip all of the contacts and go straight to the two tabs at the bottom of that column.
      • A link to skip all of the conversations and go straight to the "Write a message" box.
      • Have the search box notify the user as to how many results it has found.
      • The message popup in the header can't be selected with a combination of firefox and NVDA.
      • Some installations of IE 11 and Jaws will leave edit mode when a contact is selected to message.
      • Some of the keyboard ARIA controls for tabs are missing https://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-wai-aria-practices-20090224/#tabpanel
      • Doesn’t say who sent what message (not a huge problem since we don’t have group chats. But confusing since it reads out your own messages when you send them)

      Feel free to update this issue with other ideas as they pop up.
