Accessibility Issue in Confluence Server Inline Comment AJS Dialog aria-hidden=true

I tried to raise this as a bug with Atlassian in Jira as it seemed to allow me to create issues however when I hit the create button after having filled in all the fields I got the error 'User 'paul981668836' doesn't have the 'Assign Issues' permission.

I would have expected the create button to be hidden if I am not allowed to create bugs.

The problem I was trying to report was with inline comments in Confluence. The keyboard shortcuts popup has the attribute aria-hidden=true. If a visually impaired user has clicked this link then they would expect the keyboard shortcut information, setting aria-hidden to true hides it.

The default behaviour for AJS dialogs is to hide dialog contents from screen readers which caused us a problem in our plugins as we have to explicitly set aria-hidden to false. This default behaviour to hide dialog contents from screen readers is wrong and needs switching round.

Please could you look at this Atlassian?
