Hi: ARIA is out for now. I don't know anything about it and just want to get 
this bloody thing working properly with basic methods everyone understands at 
It will do a popup if you exceed the max. You can left mouse click the TextBox 
and hear how many characters you have typed and the Max number allowed. Putting 
a label under the textbox with a real-time value would just mean dropping a 
label on the form and either loading the value in the same script where I check 
for the text Overflow.
I am not going to do that because it is useless to a screen reader user until 
they tab out of the box and would only be really effective for sighted folks.
The idea of the noisy region holds promise but I don't think as a container for 
a running real-time value that changes while you type every letter. You might 
hear a 0 b 1 x 3 ... l 1942 m 1943 etc... if the value of the label changed for 
each letter entered and the region were read because of the updated count. 
Anyway, displaying a running count in a label is pretty easy and the alert 
popup and the hot key popup are about ready to implement.
