Comment(by cjohansen):

 Tested with FAE (http://fae.cita.uiuc.edu/). Accessibility of Add Portlets
 control poor. The problem is the use of the onChange JavaScript event
 trigger in the <select /> element:

  <select name=":action" onchange="this.form.submit()">

 To make applications accessible, they must be navigable by keyboard alone.
 Using the keyboard to navigate this select element fires the onChange
 trigger when using the arrow keys. I effect, the user can never get past
 the first choice in an option list. A fix is to remove the onChange event
 trigger and add a button to execute the selected option.
