How to indicate <strike> text

Sorry if this has been discussed here before:

My developers recently asked about <strike>/<s> text, as used to reflect changes in evolving documents. I tested a few JAWS and NVDA on a few different browsers, but the stri fcken text was always vocalized by the AT.

Any good suggestions on how best to indicate that a span of text has been removed, and that another span of text is its replacement?

Example:

<p>The project will be overseen by <strike>IT Services</strike> the Applications group.</p>

Thanks,
Todd
