Admin bar sub menu items dashicon and screen readers
|Reported by:||afercia||Owned by:||afercia|
Some screen readers may try to read out CSS generated content. For example, Safari and VoicOver get the admin bar menu sub-items dashicons-arrow-right as a text element and try to read it. There's nothing to be announced so VoiceOver just says "You are currently on a text element".
A minor but nice improvement could be refactoring these arrows, either using CSS borders or some other CSS technique, or using a <span aria-hidden="true"></span> and targeting the span for the generated pseudo element.
Either ways, it could be a good opportunity to improve a bit also the visual, maybe these arrows look a bit "old style".
