Session laws use visual text formatting such as stricken text to denote deleted language, and underlined text to denote new language. For users of the jaws screenreader it is recommended to configure jaws to use the proofreading scheme which will alter the pitch of the reading voice when reading stricken and underlined text. Instructions for configuring your jaws reader are provided by following this link.
If you can not or do not wish to configure your screen reader, deleted language will begin with the phrase "deleted text begin" and be followed by the phrase "deleted text end", new language will begin with the phrase "new text begin" and be followed by "new text end".

        support, or visitation of children, the court may require the 
        parties to attend an orientation and education program regarding 
        the proceedings and the impact on the children.  Upon request of 
        a party and a showing of good cause, the court shall excuse the 
        party from attending the program.  Parties may be required to 
        pay a fee to cover the cost of the program, except that if a 
        party is entitled to proceed in forma pauperis under section 
        563.01, the court shall waive the fee or direct its payment 
        under section 563.01.  The court may not require the parties to 
        attend the same orientation session.
