How to handle Heading under Section


From: Alexander Karelas

My page has 4 sections.

Each of the 4 sections contains a big heading.

My question is:

Should I label the 4 sections? If so, I would ideally like to label them
with the 4 headings (with aria-labelledby, maybe).

But when I do that, NVDA reads the heading twice when I press 'h' to
browse the headings. It reads it once because I entered the section, and
it reads it once more because it's reading the heading itself.

Is that considered annoying? I mean, when the user presses 'h' 4 times
to browse the 4 headings, they will hear each heading twice after each

How do you think I should handle this?

Thank you,
