Re: Strike-through Text

What I meant is that in NVDA, you can change settings so that text marked with <del> is announced es "strikethrough" and text marked up with <ins> is announced as "underline". These announcements express the presentational aspect (that the text is striken out or undelined), not the semantic meaning (that it is was marked as 'deleted' or marked as 'inserted').

I hope it is clearer now!
Best, Detlev
