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.
