Summary0001321: Form fields in user details (and certainly other places) are not labelled correct for Screenreaders
DescriptionVisually the Label and the form field in the user details belong clearly together. It is even possible to find out what form field I am editing when using a screen reader by checking the label in the column to the left.

But it would be more helpful if the form field itself is labelled with the text from the left column. This is probably easy with setting the aprociate attribute for the form field (which I don't know myself) See this link for details: http://usability.com.au/2013/04/accessible-forms-1-labels-and-identification/
Steps To ReproduceRun NVDA from www.nvda-project.org (the portable version is enough) and visit the CACert website with firefox and the screenreader turned on. You can use the speech viewer from the extras submenue of NVDA to view the speech output in a window rather than listening to the robot sounhd.
Visit your user details and tab from field to field. NVDA will not announce on which field you are on - but it should do so.
