To my understanding, aria-label can be used along with the tags span, div, a, button, and also with aria-roles.

When using "aria-label", few of the screen readers would ignore the actual link or button text. It is best to describe the link or button in the "aria-label" text itself.

Best,
Poornima.

If I understand correctly, aria-label only works on components in the accessibility tre that have an explicit or implicit role. If that is correct, it makes no sense to add aria-label to a span.
