Summary of Issue: 1.1. Non-text Content / Controls-Input
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
\"...then it has a name that describes its purpose.\"



Name? Should it not be label, if it\'s an input control? The term \"label\" would seem tech agnostic enough, so not just a reference to <label> element in HTML, so could be applicable to all types of content.

Proposed Change:
\"...then it has a *label* that describes its purpose.\"
