According to
http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.1/#aria_lh_form
HTML form elements have an implicit role of form when they have an accessible name (e.g. through aria-labelledby, aria-label or title).

A short while back I did some testing, and there didn't seem to be support in any browser screenreader combination. These things change almost daily, though.
