      1. In a course, create a forum with the type "Standardforum displayed in a blog-like format"
      2. Add a new topic. Add special characters to the name. For example:

        "Cool" & awesome topic! #ohyeah /nice >_< © ®

      3. Inspect the "Discuss this topic" link using your browser's dev tools
      4. Confirm that the aria-label attribute is not broken and contains the whole of the topic name. You should see something like

        aria-label="Discuss the topic: "Cool" &amp; awesome topic! #ohyeah /nice &gt;_&lt;  © ®"
        

        You'd see the ampersand, greater than, and less than characters encoded as HTML entities, but this is an existing separate issue.

      5. Create another topic with a normal name without any of the above special characters. E.g. "Moodle is cool"
      6. Using a screen reader, navigate to the "Discuss this topic" link for that topic.
      7. Confirm that you hear "Discuss the topic: Moodle is cool" from the screen reader instead of "Discuss this topic"
