Re: native equivalent of aria-live with NVDA

It is hard to really specify the exact level of abstraction because of my almost complete unfamiliarity with the way NVDA currently handles cases like this, as well as my unfamiliarity with the way UIA and friends handle cases like this. I'd say that your third case comes closest to what I am trying to do. Scenarios like:
- Given object X in the object navigation hierarchy, report any new text that is appended to the inner text of the object proactively.
- Given collection object Y in the object navigation hierarchy, look at any new incoming children and report their inner text, if any.
- Given non-focused object Z, monitor for changes in it's content or state and report based on a condition when either of these change.
A lot of apps do things you need to know about outside of the object you're currently focused on, but the way this is done is always different, which makes it hard to specifically ask a "how to do XYZ" question, as it were.
Your example looks promising for some of these scenarios though, I'll have a look at it, thanks.

As I often find myself saying on this list, it will help greatly if you described what you're trying to do. The context really matters here. For example:
