How Screen Reader should read Single Page Application?

Hi Everyone,

As we know, in a Single Page Application, when a user clicks on a link, we
often see instead of loading the entire webpage only a portion of the web
page is getting refreshed (say only main content is changing not the header
or footer).In this kind of scenario how SR should read the new content?

As the normal browser load is not happening, screen reader will not start
reading the page content automatically but yes, I can use ARIA to make it
read but here comes my actual question. From where SR should start reading-

1) Start from the title of the page and then the remaining content. OR
2) Only the changed content in main content section (skip header).

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks & Regards
