When I change the alt text of an image in a live region the text isn't read out by NVDA. This is the same whether I simply modify the alt text or remove and insert a new image into the live region.

Please find the testcase attached. The add to cart button works fine but the add to cart (Image) button does not

According to spec, alt text should be considered as part of aria-relevant="text". I guess this means we'll have to get the name for accessibles without text. I'm not sure what Mozilla fires in terms of events in this case. I guess we'll have to watch for name change events. Ugly.

I think the event is getting fired. If I add aria-atomic to the live region then the rest of the text in the live region gets read when I update the alt text, just not the alt text. Hopefully this isn't as difficult to fix as you fear!

IAccessible2 live region support: collect name and or description for nodes that don't have usable text. Also watch for name and description changes if relevant is text. Re #3329
