Comment (by Cheffheid):

 I'm testing in Firefox, with NVDA, on Windows. Some of these issues are
 not directly related to your changes, so I'm sorry if this is not the
 place for them. :)

 When I toggle a colour picker field (in the Customizer) it doesn't
 announce the change in the aria-expanded state. I can tell it's changing,
 so I'm not sure what's going on there (will investigate further).

 Additionally, while we're on the subject of improvements, when you enter
 an invalid hex code (like, #0000) the field turns red. But no feedback is
 given by NVDA that the value is invalid. I can still hit the "Save &
 Publish" (assuming it is active, it doesn't always enable when the value
 is invalid), but my value is never saved. I only find this out after
