<s>: the strikethrough element

The HTML <s> element renders text with a strikethrough or line through it. Use the <s> element to represent things that are no longer relevant or accurate. However, <s> is not appropriate when indicating changes to the document; to do this, use the <del> and <ins> elements, as appropriate.

Accessibility issues

The presence of the item is not announced by most screen reading technology in its default configuration. It can be announced using the CSS content property, along with the ::before and ::after pseudo-elements.

s::after {
  clip-path: inset(100%);
  clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1ppx, 1px);
  height: 1px;
  overflow: hidden;
  position: absolute;
  white-space: nowrap;
  width: 1px;        

s::before {
  content:"[start of stricken text]";

s::after {
  content:"[end of stricken text]";

Some people who use screen readers deliberately disable the announcement of content that creates more verbosity. For this reason, it is important not to overuse this technique and only apply it in situations where not knowing that content has been deleted would negatively affect understanding.
