@jeffchew @wonilsuhibm @oliviaflory do we need to set up a short meeting to discuss this? I feel like we’re talking about 3 different things, or at least coming at it from 3 different angles and it might be nice to align before we make any changes.

@Praveen-sr thank you and Ram for the quick feedback

Confirming your recommendation is to: Hide [using aria-hidden] overflow buttons from the screen reader
