You could also have a little JS DOM routine that automagically adds
"begin insert here", "end insert", "begin delete", "end delete" when the
pag is loaded. Screen readers seem to behave nicely with this kind of
method nowadays.

Depending on the context, you could only add those on demand with an
additional option somewhere in our application.

I'm more and more of the opinion that sometimes we need to adjust on
demand for these kinds of subtleties.
