Fine to commit, but to learn, which assistive technologies don't like it?

As per the other tickets of this ilk, we should be always explicitly setting associations, it's always been best practise and we've dealt with a few but not on mass - good job @mercime.

@DJPaul Thank you as always. Good question. What @hnla linked to above, older versions of JAWS and Window-Eyes and considering the popularity of JAWS and how many computers are still on the older versions of JAWS and other ATs, using the for/id method is bulletproof - tried, tested, backward compatible, and HTML5 compatible - so it's very well recommended to use it where possible.

Thank you @hnla :)
