The Mozilla test file tests for description change events. http://whatsock.com/test/dt_demo/Coding%20Arena/Inline%20Form%20Field%20Validation%20and%20Dynamic%20Help%20Tooltips/Dynamic%20Help%20Tooltip/demo.htm with IE11, There is no event being fired on the text box. There are text changed events fired on the block of text next to it.

In IE11, I tested

adding an aria-label attribute:
In that case, there was UIA:PropertyEvent event [AriaProperties = "label=banana"] where banana was the value I supplied

changing aria-label
same as adding an aria-label attribute

adding an aria-describedby attribute pointing to the ID of a div that contained text
UIA:PropertyEvent [DescribedBy =] (I think this is blank because my tool doesn't understand an idref)

changing text of existing aria-describedby
no events
