[orca-list] What makes Orca speak dynamic page updates automatically?

Hi, all. I'm starting to delve into the world of developing accessible AJAX websites, and am having issues. I notice that Orca sometimes does a great job of speaking dynamic page updates. For instance, see this XMPP-based web chat that speaks very nicely:


I've got the source to that, and there's not a bit of ARIA in sight--at least, none that I'm aware of. Yet it speaks very nicely.

I'm working on something vaguely similar, and I have javascript code appending to a logging div. If I trigger events that would log to this div, I can see the text after the fact, but it doesn't get read as the text is appended.

So why is the previously-linked app performing nicely while my own isn't? The only difference I can think of is that my log events are triggered by a button press and aren't arriving over time, but I can't think of how that might matter.
