Enable Skip to Content accessibility enhancement for folder navigation in the Cognos Analytics Portal

Description and why is it useful:  Currently, “Skip to Content” functionality allows screen reader users to skip Application and Navigation bar menu to an open report or dashboard.  The enhancement request is to apply same functionality to navigate directly to the open folder in the breadcrumb without traversing application and navigation menu bar options.  Adding skip-to-content for folder navigation will enable navigating Cognos Analytics Portal more streamlined and less laborious for keyboard-only and some screen reader users.  

How should it work:  Skip to Content will allow screen reader users to jump from top the page to open folder without having to go through navigation and application bar menu.
