      Description

      Issue
      Efficient labels - The required fields notice "There are required fields in this form marked ." is presented AFTER the submit button and screen reader users are therefore likely to miss it altogether.

      This is tested in the edit user's profile form, but likely affects all of the Moodle forms.
