Description

The link for "POSTS" be changed to be a button that does something, rather than a link that takes you somewhere. See ticket #26504 for background.

Relevant file/s
/wp-admin/edit.php

In the particular case of the "POSTS" link, the beautiful dashicon of the pin that precedes the link to POSTS "may" require additional handling for screen readers and voice recognition systems; it's in a division with a class of "wp-menu-image". A second opinion would be appreciated on the dashicons and whether any special handling is needed as it applies to assistive technology.

Congrats on your first ticket Sharon.

I think the Posts menu item isn't a good one to start with as part of #26504, because the link is always a link that goes to the Posts listing screen.

#26504 means to tackle all the links that have an href attribute of # and therefore don't actually function as a link but as a button.

If you want a good one to start with, Gary's suggestion of the Reply link on the comment moderation screen would make sense.
