      Description

      One of the features of turning on the Screen Reader setting in a Moodle profile is that the activity type will be prepended to the text in activity links. For example the link "News forum" will turn into "(Forum) News forum".

      This was found to be annoying for users of the screen reader JAWS, since this prevents finding these links by their first letter in the JAWS list of links dialog.

      Also i think this violates the principle of having the most important information first in a text.

      For these reasons i think it is better to have that text at the end of the link. For example: "News forum (Forum)".
