A colleague provide the following resource that addresses the following question.

 In ARIA, what is the difference in how JAWS treats role=”applications” and role=”document”?

See http://www.freedomscientific.com/Support/TechnicalSupport/Bulletin/1665

Strangely, this bulletin does not address  role=”document” as promised but is still a great read.
