Description

When there are no activities yet, the Dashboard Activity Widget displays a smiley icon:

It's a dashicon inside an empty paragraph and some screen readers, depending also on verbosity settings, may announce it as "text element". It's a very minor issue but the fix is trivial, just add an aria-hidden="true" attribute on the paragraph.
