Why use identical labels? You have image 1 a & image 2 why not have caption 1 & caption 2.

Subject: [thelist] Identical labels for multiple form fields

I have the following setup, for multiple image uploads, that require
an identical label value for multiple fields:

Image (1) <file upload field>
Caption <text field>

Image (2) <upload field>
Caption <text field>

and so on.

The labels that read "Caption" are the ones I'm unsure about. By using
identical labels, am I breaking any accessibility rule? Will it
confuse non-visual user agents?

Thank you,
Vijay Immanuel
