Re: VoiceOver clickable

@Joe: the tel URL scheme is not used in the websites where I've encountered this problem and it's only supported on iOS. So that's not it.

Here's the answer from Apple's accessibility team:

> Hello,
> Thank you for your email. VO speaks “clickable” when there’s a click or other mouse event on items that are not normally associated with “clicking.”
> Items usually associated with clicking have roles like link, button, etc.
> To avoid it, pick an appropriate role for the element, or use event delegation on the body element.
