Re: Strike-through Text

Just checked NVDA. here, you can make it annonce <del> and <ins> but not semantically, just presentationally.
Checking "Report font attributes" in Preferences / Document formatting, it will announce <del> as strikethrough and <ins> as underline. Which I guess is better than nothing as you will often know that you are going to look at a document with changes, and can explicitly turn on an output option that may otherwise be annoying.

under <strikethrough>
