Looking at where they get used, they are the accessibility descriptions
for the things they describe, presentation pages and notes and so on. So
you'd need an accessibility tool to hear them read out as you select
them in the UI. Anyway, it looks completely safe to separate them with
spaces and remove the capitals etc, and just format them as natural for
your language. We should probably separate them in the English version
