Bug Description

People using screen readers who can't see which tab is higlighted (in any set of tabs - navigation, in-page tabs, etc) still need to know which tab is currently active.
There is a good implementation at http://www.health.govt.nz/your-health/conditions-and-treatments/diseases-and-illnesses/asthma - this uses a hidden span in each tab with the text "tab" or "tab selected" (screen readers will read this hidden text)

(WCAG Level A)
