      Description

      When using a screen reader and navigating into the Description field with the Rich Text editor. Screen reader announces a lot of confusing information, "Rich Text Editor, revise, colon, df, underscore, compose, Underscore,description, underscore, inputRichText. Rich Text Editor, revise, colon, df, underscore, compose, Underscore,description, underscore, inputRichText. Press Alt 0 for help. Type and text." The screen reader is picking up the  <span> text which is visually hidden. This <span> text also repeats twice before announcing the ability to Type and text. A cleaner experience would be for a screen reader user to hear "Description, Rich Text Editor, Press Alt 0 for help. Type and text."

      <span id="cke_revise:df_compose_description_inputRichText_arialbl" class="cke_voice_label">Rich Text Editor, revise:df_compose_description_inputRichText</span>
