Comment (by afercia):

 Updated patch to fix the mistake noticed by @jdgrimes, thanks :)

 Forgot to mention this issue was reported also by Michelle DeYoung during
 our testing sessions, was a while ago, I forgot, sorry.

 ''The Select All heading (label for checkbox) is being announced by the
 screen readers at the start of the first data cell in each row of the
 “Row one column one Select All checkbox not checked”
 “Row two Select All column one Select {Post name} checkbox not checked”
 This could possibly be confusing for screen reader users to hear “Select
 All” and then Select... checkbox.
 If the column heading was just “Select All” I don’t think it would be that
 much of an issue, but since the column heading is Select All with a
 checkbox, that seems to make it more specific to that item (the select all
 checkbox) and not as a header for the whole column.''
