Re: Query on the accessibility of tab pattern that have previous and left arrow icon buttons around

ooof, that sounds like a carouselling tab panel.

I suspect that means you inherit most of the UX/a11y problems of carousels in general plus the constraints of a tabpanel.

I haven't seen exactly what you mean in the wild, and the things that might be close were certainly not accessible (as always, e-commerce).

If I see one though I will mention it here.
