I'm not sure about the scope of this ticket. Some of ULS accessibility concerns are raised in T186551.
If I understand what you describe correctly, you have discovered more info that could be added to existing ticket. No need to have them separate, in my opinion.

What I have observed is that once ULS is opened, you get focus on input field. Pressing tab key on keyboard can lead you away completely from ULS and usually in disruptive manner. Navigating to cog icon, pressing enter, and tabbing again to dotdotdot button, opening it by pressing enter, gives ULS with input field focused. Pressing tab key at that point throws you away to top of the page.

One case where tabbing while having focus on input field works is CLL. That change in behavior is mysterious and needs to be investigated.

Btw, I have realized you probably know what tabbing and focus is, so some parts of my comment at T186195#4012261 are futile.
