Bug Description

Currently all icons in the file browser (eg. on /artefact/file/index.php) have the alt text "Click and drag to move". This is not helpful for users of screen readers who would prefer to know what the icon depicts.
The alt text should be changed to the item type ("Folder"/"File") or perhaps the mime type.

Affects latest master
