Re: [External Sender] NVDA - aria-live=polite not announced

Hi Brian,
The whole thing is a single page application, so it's not actually changing pages, it's just changing the content in the container, and they're updating the message.

> In step 4, you say "the article page is displayed". That sounds like it might be a new page being loaded. If the "same" div has text A on one page and text B on another page, then the text has not changed as far as aria-live is concerned. I don't know if that's the case here, but it would account for the element not being announced.
