eric its more along the lines of berkers example the icon is th the
only thing used there is no on screen text and the screen reader speaks
nothing and at times even skips over the thing. efectivley this becomes a
surtch feeld with out a submit because the screen reader user does not have
any way to know its there at all. hitting enter does actavate it half of
the time but the rest of the time it needs a mouce click i say lable lable
and lable it but i get all kinds of kickback but but it does not need one
every one knows what it means. haha
