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

Hmm...then there may be some attribute on a containing element that is
causing this. As long as the element with aria-live on it exists at page
load, and then the contents of that element is changed, it should announce.
It sounds like the element is visible, so I would look for
aria-hidden="true" on a containing element. Do you have a code snipped you
can provide?
