I hope that I can get a small bit of help from several people. I'm trying t=
o verify the level of support for the aria-label and aria-labelledby attrib=
utes on images. I have a simple test file that I'm using to collect data o=
n which browsers and assistive technologies use the aria information (corre=
ctly or incorrectly). I'm looking for data on mobile and desktop systems.

The file is here: http://awkawk.github.io/aria_image_test.html

I'm collecting responses here: http://adobe.ly/NcGcXM

If you prefer to email me directly with your responses, please feel free. =
Please don't reply to the list as the intent is not to inundate list subscr=
ibers with granular information. After a week I'll post the findings here =
so everyone will get the information, but in one email rather than many.
