Type: Bug Report
Listed items in Upload are not accessible to the keyboard navigation when you use NVDA screen reader

Accessibility issue

impacts keyboard user

[WCAG 2.1.1 level A]

tested using NVDA on chrome browser

the ability to remove, review, & navigate (with direction keys) each item chosen for upload is not directly accessible via a keyboard, To overcome this the user needs a screen reader to read line by line.  
At least, a screen reader user can do the following inside the list:

  • be advised (when forcefully reading line by line); how many items in list, filename, file is incorrect or file size, (optional) reload button, and remove button.
  • use 'del' key to remove an item.
