#4405 closed defect (fixed)

IA2 live regions: Ignore content marked with aria-live="off" inside a live region

Reported by: jteh Owned by: Michael Curran <>
Priority: minor Milestone: 2014.4

Changes document entry (for developers):


Even though we do check the value of aria-live when determining whether to handle an update, we don't check for aria-live="off" while actually gathering content. aria-live="off" on a node should cause anything inside it to be ignored.

Fixes #4405.
