Dear Adrian, Jackie David W. Wood et al:

I have written to Hannah directly. 
What is a legal Blackline anyway? Is it a portion of a contract
with proposed amendments with a black underline until the other
solicitor has accepted them?

If the solicitor wants to say read text with a particular
attribute, JAWS can probably bee custom-configured to do this.
However editing the text may be difficult.

In addition, JAWS can also read text proposed to be deleted
[Struck-out]. Word Perfect years ago used to have the Generate
command, which deleted the proposed strikeouts and inserted the
Redlined text, and made it appear as normal text.
