#7017 closed enhancement (fixed)

Accessibility: Add aria attributes for dashicons in Components screen

Reported by: mercime's profile mercime Owned by: mercime's profile mercime
Milestone: 2.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


Make dashicons invisible to assistive technologies which can read CSS-generated content using the :before selector.

For example, the dashicon we add before the xProfiles component is \f336. Without aria-hidden="true" in the markup, the screen reader will spell it out character by character, "backslash f 3 3 6". Attaching patch to fix this issue.
