#30386 assigned defect (bug)

Keyboard user has to tab through all uploaded images to insert an image

Description

This is about the tab order in Add Media -> Insert media screen after uploading an image.
After uploading an image, a keyboard or screen reader user has to tab trough all the already uploaded images before she/he can insert the image into a post or page.

When there are many images it becomes almost undoable to insert an image.
An idea might be to add an extra submit button or to move the button in the tab order.

Alternately, and somewhat almost as bad, using VoiceOver (as a blind user) I can access the Insert into post button through the web rotor (VO+U). This entails going to Links within the web rotor and scrolling all the way to the bottom of the HUGE list of links to get to it. (Which I guess is better than having to maneuver through a Media Library of hundreds/thousands/etc. of images, etc.)

I assume the other screen readers have related features (e.g., JAWS' link list) and have the same quirks.

Moving the button in the tab order potentially introduces the problem in reverse; I think that having a second button in the Add Details panel would be the better solution.

Concerning navigating the grid of images, Bram proposed a possible solution in #29371; using role=application and re-binding key operations within the modal would probably be a good solution and should be investigated.
