Summary12094: role=alert on "dynamic help" seems miss used
DescriptionAccording to w3c alert must be use for live update and really important information : . Seems to be really agressive for "put a number" for example ....

It's OK for 'alert shown after submit' for sure :)
Steps To ReproduceThe Alert role is the most aggressive form of live region, and typically fires a system alert event within the platform Accessibility API so that the message will be conveyed to the user no matter which application has focus (this will typically interrupt speech output for screen reader users).
Additional InformationAria-describedby can do the trick ?

In conjunction with aria-invalid ?
