Re: Multiple live regions


From: Birkir R. Gunnarsson

It is left up to the screen reader/browser how to handle this senario.
There is no order of precedence I believe. The ARIA User Agent
Implementation guide http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria-implementation/
does not specifically
lay out the processing rules for this scenario.

I would be a little worried about a webpage that triggers multiple
live regions simultaneously. Would it be possible to change the design
to minimize that?
