I think I put this issue in the wrong place. Going to close it and rather open an issue on the Gutenberg repo.

Hello @kimclow and thanks for opening this ticket,
What theme are you using? If you're not using any of the default themes, the issue should be reported to the theme author.

Hey @audrasjb
I believe we made a child theme from Twenty Twenty-Three.

I'm going to mark this thread resolved though, as I don't think I've reported it in the correct place. Sorry for wasting your time.

Please open an issue in the Gutenberg repository and link to it here.

The Search block's icon button has an aria-label, so the SVG image should not need its own text. However, making the SVG images presentation-only (with aria-hidden="true" focusable="false", as used in the navigation submenu) probably could eliminate these messages for people who check accessibility of their sites.
