Pardon me, I'm coming into this thread a little late, so I may be off
track, but if you use a new window to show error messages, then that
will be provided to screen readers.

Also, if you initiate a screen refresh of the current window, then
whatever errors that are new on that page (via ajax) will be made
accessible to screen readers as well.
