The indicator API now supports adding accessible/textual descriptions to indicators via the app_indicator_set_icon_full and app_indicator_set_attention_icon_full method calls. It would be good if Jockey set an accessible/textual description of its indicator.

Fixed in trunk r761, I hope I got it right. The string doesn't seem to expose itself visually anywhere, I suspect it just does for screen readers?
