The original writer asked about best practices for message threading and
screen reader use.

My all-time favorite way to do this is to summarize in one sentence if
at all possible what the previous message said, then comment below that
summary. By so doing, I accomplish a couple of things. First, I save
time and bandwidth by not including the reply of the original poster;
second, if my summary is inaccurate, the original poster often feels
compelled to reply with corrections, which can be helpful.
