Aria and inline character password validation

for

Hi WebAIM list,


What are your thoughts?

Context:
The input field for password has a real time character validation that shows the users via a dynamic tooltip, the strength of the password due to using symbols, lower and upper characters.

‎Question:
‎As the user types a line on tooltip vertically increases to show strength of password (percentage change -week to strong), since this line keeps changing as the user types, what kind of "aria" should I add?

Would it be aria-live‎? Do I need javascript?

Thanks
Pete
