Add aria attributes to widgets loading animation to indicate progress to Screen Readers

This feature request concerns all Kendo widgets that have a loading indicator built in such as Kendo MultiSelect. Currently there are no aria attributes indicating progress, so users are not made aware that something is loading by the screen readers. 

One possible approach is to apply aria-busy attribute:

This is also suggested as a solution to implement for the standalone Loader component:
