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

So, first question is when view is rendered, is the live region also being rendered? Sometimes I noticed voiceover/safari being smart enough to react to a live region and it’s change simultaneously.

First thing to make sure is that live region is not being re-rendered.

If the issue still exists, try setting focus on this live region programmatically. That way you are guaranteed to announce it.

In SPAs always manage focus programmatically by placing it on the first new/changed content.

Hope that helps.

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.
