I am looking at issue 752: https://www.w3.org/WAI/ARIA/track/issues/752

I don’t see the infinite loop here.

Step 2E now says:

Otherwise, if the current node is a control embedded within the label (e.g. the label element in HTML or any element directly referenced by aria-labelledby) for another widget, where the user can adjust the embedded control's value, then include the embedded control as part of the text alternative in the following manner

In Cynthia’s example: <td>I contain a <button aria-label=”fun button”>button</button>!</td>

button is not within a label. It is within a TD.

So, in the case of 2F. TD is a cell that allows name from content and the algorithm will cycle through the children. When the current node becomes “pushbutton” ( a button ) the HTML spec. states how to compute its name and step 2C will compute the name based on the aria-label supplied.

In other words, there is no infinite loop given the current text. So, I recommend that we close the issue.

I am closing the issue.
