Hi Devin

Thanks for the feedback, and for previously explaining to us sighted 
people the pitfalls of interacting with Gemini preformatted regions. It 
was based on your analysis and explanation that led me to put this 
improvement in.

I hope more authors will take the time to add a label to their 
preformatted regions and that this becomes "normal practice", 
particularly for ASCII art which seems to be more prevalent in Gemini, 
but can sound pretty bad through a screen reader.
