Hmmm, JAWS repeats link and button text

Dear all,

A conundrum. Using the code below, when JAWS reads the button, it first repeats the link text and the button text before reading the button label. Removing the tabindex prevents this. Anyone know why the tabindex has this effect? And what can be done to prevent it? Apart from removing the tabindex.

<div tabindex="-1">
<a href="www.google.com <http://www.google.com/>;">Go somewhere</a>
<button aria-label="Press me"></button>
