RE: Question about animated images and ARIA

Nice .. but is this really a "dialog" role ?? hmmmm .. I don't know. Any comment from the other ARIA BPG guys?
Isn't this a kind of a progress indicator (loading of page)

hi stefan,
role="alert" ? with an alt text of "loading",

The question came up which ARIA role (if any) to use for an image (an animated gif file) that shows a "Loading" animation while a large page is loading. Any idea? Help gratefully appreciated!
