0) Open the attached score.
1) Select with the mouse the silence on the lower staff of the first measure.
2) Press the keyboard shortcut to "go to higher pitched note on chord".

The first silence on the upper staff is selected, but the one that was previously selected still is, you end up with both of them selected instead of scrolling.

Notice that if notes (as opposed to silences) are involved, as on the second measure, then the keyboard shortcut works as one would expect.

It only looks like both rests are selected, because not enough of the window is being redrawn. But the selection only contains one element, and that is the first rest on the upper staff. The handler for "next-chord" and "prev-chord" etc. end with a call to ScoreView::updateAll(), which simply calls QWidget::update(). The handlers for "up-chord" and "down-chord" should probably also do the same.

Fixed in branch master, commit ceaea1f149

_fix #292510, fix #292928: navigation and screenreader support for frames

Added code to read the text within frames in accessibleExtraInfo(),
but also fixed the navigation to check for a frame
before moving to the next/previous measure.
Because frames will generally have a track of -1,
I also needed to take advantage of the tracking of the current track from a previous commit
so that nagivation continues on the correct track after passing through a frame.
I also needed to be careful to handle the -1._
