Styles add structure and consistency to the document whereas formatting just adds appearance.

Subject: [Athen] Strong Vs. Bold

Hello, I didn't want to hijack an existing thread, so I decided to start a new one. Robert, you indicated that if someone uses the strong style for bold, the screen reader will announce the style change. However, the screen reader can also be configured to announce whether text is bold. With this being said, what is the difference between using the strong style or just making the text bold? Is it a visual difference?
