I'll check in a fix for this. Please check if you want to assign any special role to that close icon; I'll set it to "button" for now.

  • Ticket #8285 – Description

    initial v3  
    1 Currently if there is no focusable item in a dialog we set focus to the dialog container. The JAWS 10 screen reader does not expect focus to be set to a dialog container but an item in the dialog.  Even if there is no focusable element, we can set focus to the close icon. If this occurs, the close icon needs to be updated with ondigitclick so the user can press space or escape when focus is on the icon.  However, focus should only be allowed to go to the close icon if there are no other focusable elements.
