 Accessibility: Hide the Toolbar sub-menu icons from assistive

 CSS generated content is going to be rendered for speech output more and
 more in
 the next future. When it's not intended to be available for speech output,
 example with font icons, then special care should be used to hide it from
 assistive technologies. At the moment, the only reliable way to do this is
 use of a wrapper element and set `aria-hidden="true"` on it.

 Fixes #37513.
