Can I add Descriptions to icons?
« on: September 30, 2020, 23:27:42 pm »
Hi all, is it possible to add descriptions to the icons that Virtuemart adds to the top of the screen? ie, Search, Register and Account Details?
The Cart has a description when you hover over it 'Show Cart' but the others don't.

This is so that people with partial sight can view a page using a screen reader as the reader will read out the descriptions.

Thanks

Of course, is possible.

You can use override in your template:

XML Easy Feeder - feeds from products, orders and database table
Virtuemart Email Manager - customs email templates

VirtueMart does not add those Font Awesome "icons". Your template does that. So it's not a VirtueMart question.
