 For the time being, I have changed these to data-title's, until we can
 come up with an implementation to show this content again in a different

 I'm not opposed to fixing accessibility issues or even adhering to
 accessibility standards. I'm opposed to implementing them without this
 type of discussion or thought being applied to the problem. Blanket
 removing things because they don't fit with the latest viewpoints isn't a
 good way to go forward, IMO. That was why I originally opposed this

 But since we have had discussion on it, and seen that some other
 approaches may exist, then I'm happy to hide the content for now until we
