File Upload Form Field Accessibility

Hi All!

I am facing some issue while trying to access the <input type="file">
element using a Screen reader like NVDA with Firefox.

The Screen reader doesn't announce the label of the field. In stead it only
speaks the BROWSE button.

This is the form control never read by Screen Reader hence the user doesn't
understand what is the field is all about.

Can somebody help me to understand the accessibility experience of this

If this has already been discussed, please let me know the thread I need to
