Remember that more is not better. You won't hear the information twice, but
it is not predictable which a given screen reader will announce. So for
maintenance reasons use label when on-screen text is available, title when
it is not and don't use both!

Subject: RE: [WebAIM] Adding a label to search box
I have been following this threat with great interest. In my case, I
always try to remember to add a "label for" attribute for forms. Way
back when, Bobby was free, I used it to check my site and if there was
no "label for", I failed. So out of habit, I try to consistently use it.
But, I'm curious, if I used label for and the title attribute on a form,
would a person using speech hear the same text twice?
