API to GET Kobo submissions using 'label' rather than value

I am using the API to return submitted forms from Kobo from: https://kf.kobotoolbox.org/assets/xxx/submissions/

My question is how do I return the actual text form response (called ‘label’ in the API) rather that the ‘Value’ in the Kobo form (called ‘name’ in the API) These ‘Values’ are numbers and I cannot interpret them.

I see there are some lookup values (list_name, $kuid) but I’m hoping there is an easy way to just retrieve the text rather than having to write code to loop through all the JSON
