[JAVASERVERFACES_SPEC_PUBLIC-1159] Add support for WAI-ARIA aria-live property for portions of the page updated via <f:ajax> Created: 28/Jan/13 Updated: 08/Nov/13
|Remaining Estimate:||Not Specified|

|Original Estimate:||Not Specified|

Currently, JSF doesn't have any explicit support for WAI-ARIA (http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria.php), except for the role attribute. <f:ajax> should be updated to use the aria-live attribute at the very least.

After looking at this in more detail, there are several attributes that one may need to apply to the element that's being updated by an Ajax:
Only the page author (and possibly the component being re-rendered) know which attributes should be set, and what the values should be. Since the regions are denoted with these attributes up-front, perhaps there's not much for <f:ajax> to do after all, because the page author can either use pass-through attributes or HTML5-friendly markup to specify these attributes on the component that needs to be updated.

I like this idea, targeting for 2.3.
