 #24766 suggests removing the title attribute from this icon. And replacing
 the icon with the word(s) would require making the column wider and/or
 other changes.

 Because the element already has non-visual text, I propose simply telling
 screen readers to ignore the icon and the title attribute. The title may
 not have much value for people who do not use a mouse, but keeping the
 attribute is easier than making a fully accessible tooltip (#51006).
