Re: multiple aria-live regions on a single action

A few months ago I tested the simultaneous update of multiple aria-live
regions with NVDA on Firefox.

Generally with them all set to polite, NVDA queued them up and announced
them all. When they were all set to assertive, the user only ever heard one
- presumably the last one to actually get updated.

My assumption from that is that NVDA clears any queued announcements when
an assertive change occurs - even announcements triggered from previous
assertive changes.
