Interesting one! Here are my views when it comes to search results that displays the suggestions.

1. The number of results should ideally be announced as we type the letter else it won't be equitable experience.

* If we restrict the verbosity it will defeat the purpose of auto suggestion as i might want just on typing the results to be announced and then select the appropriate one.

2. To control the announcement the live region should be set appropriately.

* This will help to cut the verbosity to an extent - also the dynamic updates then should be announced when user is idle rather than a kind of instant feedback.

Thanks and Best,
