The HTML structure of the main menu in Admin is confusing for screen readers.
A problem for the screenreader user is, that the reader can't determine the structure of the list items. What is a main menu item and what a sub item?
The reason for this is that the sub items are placed into separate div’s and not directly as li tags relating into the menu list.
For each subitem two links are added, one for the image and one for the link itself.
Maybe it's better to put each sub item with one link into a <li>, adding the image and the mouse over effects by CSS?
