Accessibility: Title attribute should not be added to image markup by media.php
|Reported by:||esmi||Owned by:||nacin|
Title attributes on images create issues with some assistive software (eg JAWS in verbose mode) yet are completely inaccessible to other assistive software (JAWS in non-verbose mode, VR software etc). Alt is the prescribed and 'correct' method for relaying information to non-sighted visitors or those using non-graphical browsers.
While Title is certainly needed for the media library itself, it should be removed, if possible, from the generated image markup.
