Have you read the FAQ and checked for duplicate open issues?

What version of Shaka Player are you using?

Can you reproduce the issue with our latest release version?
N/A - no UI in v2.4.x

Can you reproduce the issue with the latest code from master?

Are you using the demo app or your own custom app?

What browser and OS are you using?

What are the manifest and license server URIs?
Any live stream

What did you do?

  1. Load live stream
  2. Try to tab to the timecode

What did you expect to happen?
Since this is clickable (seeks to live edge), it should be tab-seekable and accessible as well.

What actually happened?
The timecode can't be tab-navigated, and it has no role and no aria label. It is a div with a click event.

This should be accessible, ideally as a styled button (inherently accessible) instead of a div. The aria label ARIA_LABEL_LIVE (already exists, unused) should be applied if player.isLive() to alert users that it can be used to seek to the live edge. The same label could be used as a tooltip for sighted users, again if player.isLive().
