role="alertdialog" .s-toast The wrapping content area of an alert. Elements with the alertdialog role must use the aria-describedby attribute to reference the alert message within the dialog. (Source)

Floating notices, but aligned to the top and center of the page and they disappear after a set time. Visibility is changed with animation by toggling between aria-hidden="true" and aria-hidden="false". When including buttons, you can apply .s-notice--btn to buttons to apply a toast-specific color.
