The only way I know of to have viewers of a page receive notifications not requiring an action on their part, is for an administrator of that space to use the 'Managed Watcher' feature to add them manually. This is not troublesome for less than a few dozen users, and we use this option frequently.
If we do this, we like to do the courtesy of letting them know - usually via email unless there is a teleconference or webconference with that audience that provides the opportunity - that they have been added as watchers of the particular page and thus will be receiving emails when there are updates (page edits, comments, attachment adds/edits).
Another option is to make your change and then user the share feature (see screenshot) to email a group. This wouldn't happen automatically, so it would require you to be on top of it.
