Bug Description

The text box used to edit your cover letter (in Content -> Resume) currently has the label "Description". This is confusing for screen reader users who don't realise the context.

The label should be changed to something more obvious, like simply "Cover Letter"

The same form - and same label 'Description' are also used in Interests and Goals and Skills which means the labels for these would have to be seperated or some other description that can be applied to all.

Allow custom labels for simple Resume forms (Bug #1259363)

Added options parameter to simple_resumefield_form (currently only used
for custom labels) and changed the labels of Cover letter and Interests
from the generic 'Description' to more specific text and set them to
be visible only to screen readers.
