Input buttons must have discernible text
<input /> based button elements require an accessible name so that screen readers can accurately
read and convey their meaning and purpose to the user.

How Users Are Affected
The accessible name is used by assistive technologies to label, announce and trigger actions of interactable UI elements (e.g. buttons, links, input fields). When interactable elements don’t have a valid accessible name, assistive technologies lack the hook they are designed to use to parse and read the content accurately.
