Button text gets repeated in VoiceOver #2594

The form buttons on are read twice by VoiceOver (tested with Safari 5.1 on OS X 10.6.8) – first the visible, "fake" button, then the real button. The same thing happens i iOS (tested in iOS 4.3.5) when you let VoiceOver read the whole page by swiping downwards with two fingers.

It appears that setting aria-hidden="true" ( for the "ui-btn-text" element prevents this and makes VoiceOver speak only the real button.
