Hi Jim,

Versions of jaws beginning with 5.0 I believe and up through 6.0 will 
announce these attributes if you set the voice to either proof reading or 
classic with attributes.  This is done in speech and sounds manager under 
the configuration manager.

Subject: Strikethrough elements and JAWS

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>"
"A Sheriff can employ thirty-five deputies."

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