highlighting code changes on an html page

I am working on a web tutorial that includes code snippets.

The existing tutorial uses bold text to highlight what code has been added to the snippet. Since a screen reader wouldn't necessarily know that text is bolded, is there a "best practice" for how to indicate changed code in this scenario?

Thanks, Donald

Accessibility, like security, is better when built-in from the beginning rather than bolted on at the end.
