Breaking this down from Eric Wright (@ewaccess) testing session with Dragon NaturallySpeaking (speech recognition software). Please refer to the videorecorded session posted here:
https://make.wordpress.org/accessibility/2018/03/28/accessibility-of-gutenberg-the-state-of-play/

Please refer to the video above, starting from about min. 23:40

When inserting a link and the link field is focused, voicing the command "Press enter key" triggers browser validation, as if the field was empty. Seems this is not the only case when using speech recognition software, the UI doesn't get an input field is actually populated with some text. See also #6010 and #5468.

Removing from the Merge Proposal milestone, as right now it's unclear how to solve this and it should be solved together with the similar issues anyways.

See #5468 (comment)
We have now a clue why this is happening. Still unclear how to solve it in a proper way.
