Combo box not Speaking the Label When Tabbing

Is this a normal behavior that when I land on the combo box when I press tab from a prior form field all JFW is saying is the word (required) and not the label I put which is (subject)? Note that I have less control with the HTML code since the form is made by a WordPress plugin.

This is not part of the question but I notice there's the aria-invalid="false" in the code. I'm saying this because I once read a thread here discussing the announcement of the invalid message even the field is empty.
