Question about using role with main and application


From: Renato Iwashima

I have a specific region of my page which requires to go into application
mode while also being the main content of the page.

Is it OK to give it multiple roles such as role="main application"? I've read
that multiple roles may cause some bugs with some screen readers
but it was related to abstract roles. Would screen readers have any
problems for standard landmarks or is it better to create another wrapper
to do it?
