Accessibility live region on Xamarin

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

Xamarin Forms does not have built-in support to indicate an accessibility live region. By using Effects it is possible to implement platform specific behaviour. The A11YEffectA11YEffect for Android and A11YEffect for iOS files show how to implement an effect to replicate an accessibility live region.

    effects:A11YEffect.ControlType="{OnPlatform iOS=LiveUpdate, Android=LiveUpdate}" />
