The site identity popup and the security information sub panel now contain this much information, including permissions, if set, and other info, that it warrants making these into documents for NVDA and other screen readers. The panels themselves behave as before, but the added roles and headings make the screen reader use browse mode instead of application mode, similar to what we did for Settings and the Protections panels.

The site identity and security sub panels now contain that much information that it warrants to make these more easily navigable for NVDA and other screen readers. The panels behave as before, but the added roles and heading levels cause NVDA and other screen readers to use their browse mode features instead of regular application interaction so blind and visually impaired users can review the information more easily.
