I know live regions work, since I've used aria-live=polite and others in the past.

I'm curious why Voiceover can't recognize the changed content when updated through innerHTML, but does recognize it when innerHTML is not used. Safari registers the change, just not Voiceover.

  What about if you use aria live regions?

    My colleague brought this up today, and I thought it was interesting. It appears that Voiceover on iOS devices doesn't support the use of innerHTML, where the changed content is not actually detected.

    I tried his test page at
    Using an iPhone with the latest OS, and it appears to be true. Tapping the third innerHTML link increments the value, but not for Voiceover.

    Has anyone else encountered this before?
