Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

There is no pointer or distinction between the 'Departments' category or 'Featured' or 'What's new'.

To reproduce this is software-center 2.1.10:
1. Navigate to the last item in 'Departments' category. - perhaps 'Sound and Video'
2. Press tab once. The focus moves to 'Featured' category and Orca reads out "All" - without informing the user that he/she is now navigating the featured apps list.
3. The same for 'What's new' category.

Attaching a screenshot with the Braille Monitor output.

Hi Sajjad! Thanks a lot for your bug report. I have solved this issue by giving the 'all' button of the featured section a label of 'featured section: show all' (button). Likewise for the what's new section. Ideally we would have the title for the section as a focus-able item and then the all button with the label 'show all' or so, but for whatever reason I couldn't manage to get the section title to become focus-able. Please continue to report any a11y bugs you may find in software-center. Thanks again for your help!
