Hi clever people :)


Can anyone tell me exactly what will trigger an update of the screen reader
buffer, when new content is dynamically added to a webpage?


I do not want the screen reader to automatically start reading the new

Is aria-live=”off” the right way to go in this case?


Are there other methods that will make the screen reader buffer update?


When searching the internet I only find rather old information on this


Best regards:
