Control-Option-W is the command to do this. REmember for this to work you'll 
need to interact with the item that says "panel" and then interact with the 
scroll area within the panel.  Then control-w wil read the track name and it's 
state weather it's selected, soloed or muted.

It has ben that way since Leland started working on the accessible builds. 
admittedly I didn't report this one because I found that using Control-option-W 
would read the information adequately.  It would be nice to have it read when 
the arrows were moved. Perhaps something that can be worked on?

I see the same thing here. Ineracting with the slider doesn't help here to get 
the information. Wuld be nice to have this working.

They are definitely problems and if possible should be addressed.
