Potential accessibility issues with video demonstrations

Here are a few potential accessibility with video demonstrations using the JAWS screen reader. I haven't tried with NVDA or VoiceOver.

I can try to connect with the WCAG guidelines, if that would help.

Issue 1. There buttons in a toolbar in the visual interface of the desktop application that I can't seem to access with the keyboard commands. The video shows me trying:

Issue 2. In the information panel on the desktop app, I am trying to switch between title and sentence case, but it seems to require the mouse

Issue 3. In the information panel, there are some issues around the labels of the metadata form elements

Issue 4. I can't seem to be able to find a way to move an item to another collection using the keyboard only.

    Thanks for posting these and providing the clear videos.

    As we mentioned via email, we're working to hire an accessibility specialist to focus entirely on these sorts of issues across all of Zotero's platforms.

    Re: the issue you forwarded via email about a user being "unable to navigate the screen in the Zotero desktop client beta version", we're aware of some accessibility regressions regarding rows not being read properly in the collections and items trees — which are completely rewritten in the beta — and should have some fixes soon, definitely before Zotero 6. If that's not what the person is referring to, we'd need more details.
