Hi,
I need to create a review page for an application which shows text
which has changed (preferably as a strikethough) and its replacement.
It would seem that the natural elements for this would be <DEL> and
<INS>, however JAWS does not seem to recognise these elements. In fact
it reads the example from the WCAG 2.0 draft techniques document,
"<P>A Sheriff can employ <del>3</del><INS>5</INS> deputies. </P>"
as 
"A Sheriff can employ thirty-five deputies."

Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to accomplish this requirement.

Thanks,
James
