      Description

      Issue
      Resource activity icons on the course page have an alt text set to resource, however the icon changes based on the type of file that has been uploaded to the resource. Because activity icons are used to convey meaning in the moodle course page the alt text for a resource should include the type of file that has been uploaded. This text shoudl convey the same meaning that a sited user gains by viewing the icon.
