Very quick back/packet test suggests that Jaws 17 announces both labels
in Firefox 47, and neither label in IE11 (it seems that Jaws isn't
announcing anything associated by aria-labelledby in IE11).

<label id="a">Label A</label>
<label id="b">Label B</label>
<input type="text" aria-labelledby="a b">
