 Replying to [comment:52 MarcoZ]:
 Thanks very much Mr. Zehe :)
 The current implementation uses a live region but only to announce the
 total number of results.
 The combobox has an aria-activedescendant attribute and it seems it gets
 correctly updated. The combobox aria-owns points to an unordered list with
 role="listbox". The option items use tabindex="-1". Example of one option
 item markup:
 <li role="option" id="mce-wp-autocomplete-1011" class="ui-menu-item"
 tabindex="-1"><span>This is one search result</span> <span
 Tested with Firefox + NVDA and IE 11 + JAWS and it works pretty well.
 Fails miserably with VoiceOver. We'll try to change aria-owns or maybe
 could it be role="combobox" on the input field? I've noticed the Twitter
 search omits it.
 Thanks again!
