Text selection changed notifications allow assistive technology to respond to changing content and user navigation. The fidelity and reliability of these responses could be improved by including context data in the notifications as to what the user intent behind the change was.

Useful context data:

Edit operations like insert, delete, cut, paste. To help in discerning why text showed up or went away, not just that it did. Also knowing the source of an edit operation can be useful, like in the case of dictation, where speech echo could disrupt ongoing dictation.

Selection change granularity, direction, type. To help in discerning how to echo the change to the user. For example moving right by one word using option+right arrow should be echoed differently than moving the cursor to the next word by clicking on it.
