VoiceOver is not recognizing ARIA 'alert' and 'alertdialog' roles

I am developing a 508 compatible application. I am facing a problem where VoiceOver is not recognizing my pop-up window (with aria role 'alertdialog') as an alert dialog. However, if i do a simple javascript (window.alert('test message');) it seems to be working fine. Can anyone help me regarding what i need to do to make VoiceOver recognize my popup window as an alert ?

Unfortunately, VoiceOver doesn't support many ARIA elements on IOS, including alerts. Even if you are coding it properly, at this point it won't work. Hopefully it will be fixed in IOS 7, in the meantime if an alert is important, provide a different solution.
