 Many things have changed in the link modal dialog, see #33301. It is now
 greatly simplified and that makes things easier for accessibility too. Now
 that #33301 is going to be shipped with WordPress 4.5 I'd recommend the
 refreshed patch for commit consideration. It does a few, simple, things:
 - adds a `role="dialog"` and an `aria-labelledby` attribute to the modal
 - changes the modal title in a `h1`
 - removes one ` ` that gets read out as "blank" by screen readers
 - changes the "Cancel" link in a button
 - removes some no more used CSS

 Screenshot before and after the patch:
