Set Label for Spinner doesn't change Name-Property of Spinner

      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      There is no way to change the name-property of a Spinner control. Instead the name of the Spinner is always set with the value of the text field. This causes problems with voice output. We tried to use setLabelFor to link a Label to a Spinner, but the name of the Spinner isn't changed. Please provide a method to change the name property of a Spinner.

      If you look at the same control in MS Word with Accessibility Insights (e. g. paragraph settings of left indent) you will notice that the name property is identical to the label.

      We provide a simple test case and some images from Accessibility Insights and MS Word.
