Names for ARIA menu and menubar

Dear Colleagues,

I am perplex about Screen Readers treatment of ARIA menu and menubar names applied by aria-label on the corresponding element. Both JAWS and NVDA do not announce the menu name when focussing on menu items. We have in our product, that we implement as a single-page web app at the same time up to 3 menus and it is very important for the user to know in which widget is the item he/she focuses on.

Does somebody know what is the reason the screen readers ignore the menu names? Or is it undisputed a bug? Thanks.
