Angular webclient navbar doesn't work with keyboard navigation

Bug Description

In the Angular webclient navbar, the menus (e.g. Cataloging, Booking, Search) are not focusable. The entries within those menus are all <a>s with href attributes, which focus just fine. Unfortunately, keyboard users can't get to them, since they can't focus and expand the menus themselves. :-(

It might also be nice to be able to use the left and right arrows to move between menus.

The menu also does not allow you to collapse a menu to go backwards and forwards through the menu system.

Once you open them menus, there is not a way to close them to move on.

Updating to ng-bootstrap 4.1.0 or later should help with this, as that adds the ngbDropdownItem directive to specify that a dropdown menu item should be keyboard navigable.
