No role required.


This property applies to live regions in the user interface. If authors know that multiple parts of the same live region need to be loaded, they can set IHTMLElement5::ariaBusy to true when the first part is loaded, and then set it to false when the last part is loaded.

Note  For cross-browser compatibility, always use the WAI-ARIA attribute syntax to access and modify ARIA properties, for example object.setAttribute("aria-valuenow", newValue).
