Steps to reproduce

<div id=’guyWithAriaLabelAndText’ aria-label=’read this’>don’t read this</div>
<div aria-describedby=’guyWithAriaLabelAndText’>what describes me?</div>

selecting the second div in the accessibility tree shows that the full description is "don’t read this", but it should be “read this” (the content of the aria label). Screenshot of edge debug window attached.
