However, accessibility of this area is extremely weird. The
icons are usually, though not always, announced as the application

a context menu, you end up clicking on the applet to the right of the
one orca's focus has landed on. Gnome developers cannot simply blow
this off as, sorry, status icons is deprecated, blame your app
provider. If the status icon for a particular app is not accessible,
yes that's a problem with the app. But this is a problem with the
where the icons are themselves.
I really don't think anything has changed in the accessibility
implementation of status icons while they were moved from the message
tray to the legacy tray. It has been just as 'weird' before.
