Actually, I just realized that using Control + Tab and Control + Shift + Tab 
to work to navigate. Is this an acceptable solution for those using Orca?

My initial patch to fix the Tab and Shift+Tab not working was simply to disable
keyboard focus in the chat view, but I don't like this because then you can't
scroll using the arrow keys.
