Hello everyone,

I have been working on some techniques for WCAG WG issue 144 [1]

The latest versions are:

1. Using aria-hidden="true" on an icon font that AT should ignore
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Using_aria-hidden%3Dtrue_on_an_icon_font_that_AT_should_ignore

2. Icon Font with an On-Screen Text Alternative
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Icon_Font_with_an_On-Screen_Text_Alternative

3. Using aria-hidden="true" on Unicode characters that AT should ignore
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Using_a_Decorative_Unicode_Character

4. Unicode Character with an On-Screen Text Alternative
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Providing_an_On-Screen_Text_Alternative_for_an_Icon_Font

Comments and ideas for improvement appreciated.

Kindest Regards,
Laura
