Yes, we probably will use HTML with ARIA for accessible Firefox
applications. But we've already got one XUL application and I consider
the cost and benefits of maintaining it further in XUL or switching its
user interface to HTML/ARIA.

Good idea :-). I tried and it doesn't work unless I did anything wrong.
BTW, when playing with live regions and Orca I don't understand one
thing: Live region contents are read by Orca when they are changed in
timers. But when I bind the same text changing function to a "button"
(i.e. to an onclick attribute of an HTML element), the change is not
spoken when the button is pressed (and the text changed accordingly),
even when aria-live="rude", and it's not present in the live region
Is it intended behavior or do I do anything wrong? If the latter, is
there a working example (from the point of view of Orca reading) of a
live region which is changed as a result of a user action?
