Bug Description

*** Superseded and fixed in Bug #1489245

In pages such as /admin/users/staff.php and /admin/users/admins.php, staff or administrators are chosen by selecting items in one list then clicking a button to transfer them to another list. However, the buttons do not have a descriptive value so it's hard for screen reader users to figure out how this works.
The "<" and ">" buttons should be given values which describe what they do (eg. "Move to administrators") and a note should be added in the user manual which explains how to select and move items using the keyboard (including selecting multiple items, etc.)

Affects latest master (using Orca 3.10.1)

There is a note about doubling clicking a name for moving it at http://manual.mahara.org/en/1.8/administration/institutions.html#members but I haven't added it everywhere yet. Can do so for the 1.9 manual.
