Bug Description

In tables with edit/delete buttons on the right (eg. in /admin/site/licenses.php and /artefact/plans/plan.php) the column header above these buttons is blank. This is annoying for screen reader users who rely on column headers to find out information about the table.
Hidden text such as "Edit buttons" or "Edit/delete" should be added to these headers.

Hi Jono,

Can you please check with Julius what heading is typically used for columns such as these? If there is a standard way of describing such columns, we should be using it. :-)

Julius thinks the best title for the column is simply "Edit" since "Delete" is still considered an editing command. It's something to try out rather than a standard though.
