- Use Tab key navigation to bring focus to any form control Radio (or Checkbox)

Error Behavior -
Voice Over reads the form control labels in primary language ("en")

Expected Behavior -
Voice should read the form control labels in language as specified in target language (as specified in lang tag)

VoiceOver in Mac OS X 10.15 Catalina seems to be behaving properly with respect to labels and the lang attribute.
I updated Gaurav's test case (there was an incorrect "for" attribute on the first example). All examples seem to be working except for #2: https://jsfiddle.net/rvLt4k67/1/
