Improve focus management on webview course searches

Description

Location: Course search (Native mobile apps only) e.g. https://www.edx.org/course?search_query=html

Severity: 7

Description: When adding a filter or clearing a filter element, focus is redirected to the Search field. Voiceover users have a few more swipes to get back to where they were. This may make filtering more cumbersome for VoiceOver users since they cannot select multiple filters at once. They will have to navigate back to the Filters multiple times to make their selections.

Pattern: None

Auditor Note: Developers should not shift focus to the search field. Instead, focus should go on the "Viewing results matching" heading since that also indicates what context change happened based on their interaction (added filter or removed filter).

Internal Note: Confirmed and I agree. Move focus to the Heading that reveals how many results are showing. This also affects Android.

Correct, I tried this on prod build with the configurations mentioned but on accessing 'Find Courses' screen app was showing SSL error. Seems like we cannot test this on App right at the moment.


However, this was working fine on iOS Safari.

There are issues with the certificate on the test site and the App I believe. The code changes were simple and releasing to production will not hurt. I am not sure how else we can test the application due to the nature of the certificate and security concern with the test site.

Can you comment as you attempted to test in app locally.

If you are able to deploy the app to your phone locally then you can test it by updating URL for COURSE_SEARCH_URL in the configuration file.
I will test it as well and share my findings with you guys.
