In theory yes (the 2nd column of the table in ARIA in HTML
<http://w3c.github.io/html-aria/#docconformance>; lists the default implicit
ARIA semantics for each HTML element [Informative only], whether a feature
has implicit ARIA semantics [or something else] is defined in HTML
Accessibility API Mappings 1.0 <https://w3c.github.io/html-aam/>), it's up
to the screen reader whether they announce the aria-label for any given
element. For example JAWS announces aria-label on <ul>, but not on <li>. It
would be great if screen reader developers agreed on what/how they
supported such features... :-)
