Yes, I experience this as well, with both Jaws and NVDA. Suspect its a
browser issue, but hopefully a mozillian can answer this question more

Subject: File Browse Form Element Accessibility

Hi All!

I am facing some issue while trying to access the <input type="file">
element using a Screen reader like NVDA with Firefox.

The Screen reader doesn't announce the label of the field. In stead it only
speaks the BROWSE button.

This is the form control never read by Screen Reader hence the user doesn't
understand what is the field is all about.

Can somebody help me to understand the accessibility experience of this
