Accessibility live region on React Native

A live region allows users of assistive technologies to receive updates whenever important information on the screen changes.

On React Native, the accessibilityLiveRegion prop can be used to indicate a live region. The value can be set to asssertive to interrupt ongoing speech to for immediate announcements on change. The polite value can be used to queue announcements. The none value can be used to disable announcements on change.

<Text accessibilityLiveRegion="assertive|polite|none">
