Yes it is aria-live with role="alert". I would make the aria-life="polite" for the best user experience.

You will need a JS function that would execute onkeyup.

Subject: [WebAIM] Aria and inline character password validation

Hi WebAIM list,

What are your thoughts?

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.

‎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?
