I have a feeling this thread issue is one we need to write a guide for -
that is unless someone has one hidden away! There are so many different
types of forums, mail lists or social networks but possibly a few easy to
understand points may help everyone. Once again thank you for all the help.
Best wishes E.A.

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.
