As a screen reader user, I expect to be able to reset my password on edX and be notified that my request was successful.
Using JAWS or NVDA on Windows, open Firefox or IE 11 (or Chrome with NVDA) and navigate to edx.org/login.
Click the 'Forgot password?' link
Enter your email address and click 'Reset my password'.
The screen reader reads the success message (the contents of the green 'Check your email' notification area).
The screen reader does not read the success message.
I tested my theory by changing the call order so that the success message would be rendered after the login view became visible. This didn't fix the issue. I believe that may be because the message was rendered too quickly after the login view became visible, possibly before the screen reader had a chance to recognize the presence of a new aria-live region on the page. A potential solution may involve moving the form feedback container outside of the login subview so that it never gets hidden. This might be a bit involved, but it would probably allow for more consistent screen reader behavior across our logistration pages.
