Accessibility: Aria-Label vs. html <LABEL for>



Accessibility - JAWS reads out the required format information which uses Aria-Label rather than the html <LABEL for> associated to the input.

Root Cause

The aria-label is being given for situations other than text and also if no label is present.
As a side effect, a screen reader does not read the actual label when present.  Instead it is only reading the aria-label.


This issue is resolved by hotfix item HFix-10039.
