Add Media navigation focus

Splitting this out from #23561

The action performed when a screen reader user activates a link in the navigation tabs on the left hand side of the Add Media panel is not clear.

It is possible to tab round the text links in the Add Media panel. However actioning the Insert Media or Create Gallery links does not apparently do anything - there is no audible feedback that the contents of the next panel have changed. Suggest that when one of these links is actioned that focus is transferred into the relevant panel - to the heading would be a good place.

Keyboard accessibility for the media modal:

  • Arrow keys navigate between items in the grid.
  • Transfer focus into the panel when selecting a tab along the side.
  • Transfer focus into the details sidebar when selecting an item and vice versa.
  • Set initial focus on the close button so that it is visible.
