List table: Lists of items should inform users about the "current view" being displayed
|Reported by:||afercia||Owned by:||joedolson|
See related #32147
Several screens in the admin present items in a list and you can filter these lists choosing which "view" you want, whether they're Posts in a List Table or lists generated by other components (see Themes and Plugins), they all have some "views" links.
When you select a view, there's no clear, semantic, indication in the markup about the current view being displayed. There's just some bold text.
Users, especially the ones who use assistive technologies, would need some feedback about which kind of "view" they're currently in. For example, something like you're currently viewing the Scheduled Posts. Of course this is the semantics that should be conveyed, not the best possible phrasing.
There are ways to do this but the main issue would be about translatable strings, as pointed out in #32147.
Any thoughts and patches more than welcome :)
