      Description

      The printer icon next to the "Print" tab should be considered as decorative images, as they are redundant with the text next to it.HTML:

      <a id="modifyMeeting:print" name="modifyMeeting:print" href="javascript:window.print();">    <img src="/sakai-signup-tool/images/printer.png?sakai.tool.placement.id=b9027c34-8b49-40fd-a698-0f62b7a844a1" alt="Print this page" title="Print this page" class="openCloseImageIcon">    &nbsp;Print</a>

      Screen readers will try to announce the image and the textual data, which will confuse the users.Developers must provide an empty alt attribute.HTML:

      <a id="modifyMeeting:print" name="modifyMeeting:print" href="javascript:window.print();">    <img src="/sakai-signup-tool/images/printer.png?sakai.tool.placement.id=b9027c34-8b49-40fd-a698-0f62b7a844a1" alt="" title="Print this page" class="openCloseImageIcon">    &nbsp;Print</a>
