Description

The tab controls in the server list and the options dialogue are not screen reader accessible. They cannot be changed with the keyboard, and are not screen reader labeled. The tree views work fine.

Thanks, the new tab system was recently added, I was not aware that it was not accessible, will look into that.

I also now just realized that searching in options uses red borders around the tabs and controls to indicate a match, do you have any suggestions on how this can be represented in an accessible way?

Personally, I'm happy with the way it works now, by filtering the items in the tree view to only the ones with matching results. Unfortunately, there's no really standard way to do this. You could put asterisks around the accessibility labels for the matching items, but I don't think it's a high priority. Fixing the tabs is much more important; as things stand, adding servers is almost impossible, because you can't get to the servers tab when adding a network with the keyboard.
