Icons communicate meaning in a graphical user interface.
- Provide descriptive text when an icon is meaningful or has an action associated with it. Do not provide additional text when the icon is decorative.
- See Images - Accessibility for Teams and Accessibility - Font Awesome.
Use USWDS icons available in
src/img or add Font Awesome to your project. USWDS uses icons in two ways:
- SVG in HTML
- SVG in CSS backgrounds
