How is the material design Snackbar accessible if someone is using a screen reader?

enter image description here I have an accessibility question about the snackbar pattern used in Material Design. Snackbars - Material Design

The behaviour of a snackbar is to appear for a temporary period of time then automatically dismiss itself.

To me it doesn’t appear to be accessible for a user who has screen reader turned on as the reader may miss reading out this message.

What are your thoughts?

There are accessibility options for the snacker, as detailed in this forums post here:
