The survey uses proper labels and fielsets/legends, so I'm not sure
what the issue would be.

If you are using Window Eyes, it has never supported properly
formatted fieldsets and legends by default. I think there may be a
fieldset verbosity setting that you need to enable or customize. I
recommend that you bring this up with GW Micro (I have brought this to
their attention many times in the last several years) or use a screen
reader that supports form accessibility by default.
