ARIA best practices

One function I use in my courses is ARIA tags to identify changes in text or screen functions to screen readers. Specifically, I use the "aria-live" attribute with the value "assertive". This alerts the screen reader that there is new text on the screen and to read it immediately. There are pros and cons to using ARIA that this article talks about, including the "aria-live" attribute. Take a gander and if you have other comments or articles talking about aria, this might be a good thread to continue.

ARIA is spackle, not rebar
