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.

Test case attached. When you press the button, "This added text should not be presented" should not be spoken.

Inside a live region, content which is marked as not being live (e.g. aria-live="off") is now correctly ignored.

Fixes #4405.
