Comment (by mercime):

 In [changeset:"11564"]:
 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="11564"
 Replace title attributes with BuddyPress Tooltips.

 The values of title attributes provide additional information which show
 up on
 mouse :hover for some links. However, such text values are not even read
 by some
 ATs and the native title tooltips do not show up for keyboard users on
 This means that some users are deprived of helpful information which can
 provide some guidance to navigate through the BP screens.

 The new BP tooltip pattern shows additional information on :hover and
 :focus and
 prevents redundant information for users of screen readers or other ATs by
 adding `aria-label="some-info"` only as needed.

 See #7188.
