      DESCRIPTION

      Accessibility enhancements in accordance with the following Licenensee's Software Accessibility guidelines:

      #2.2 Provide semantic information about user interface objects. When an image represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text.

      #2.3 Associate labels with controls, objects, icons and images. If an image is used to identify programmatic elements, the meaning of the image must be consistent throughout the application.
