      Description

      The gear icon in the Boost theme does not provide sufficient definition for what it is when used by screen readers. 

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Use Boost theme
      • Log in as user with course editing capabilities
      • Open a course
      • Use screen reader to get content
      • Screen reader describes gear icon only as 'pop up button'

      For one of the primary editing menus in Boost, the gear icon should have a clearer description.
