Description

Screen readers do not understand html entity characters and speak, "question". Since the down arrow is part of the button text, the screen reader is speaking it. This can be fixed by using the labelledby waiState to assign the label as only the text portion of the button.

(In [8963]) use labelledby attribute to identify the name of the dropdown button so the html entitity character is not included in the name. fixes #3302 remove incorrect waiState from Button.js mark fieldset and html entity as presentation in combobutton.html so screen readers will not speak.
