How do screen readers handle the letter thorn: þ ?

If the screen reader is set to Icelandic, I assume it processes it normally. What if the screen reader is set to English? I have seen people use a thorn to represent "th" in words. Can screen readers process this as a "th" sound even in English?

Thanks in advance for any help!

When writing articles or documents in general I'd occassionally like to add pictures into the document e.g. a photo or a screenshot. While doing this I am always asking for help from someone else because I'm #blind. Can you give me some recommendations how to make sure the image is right size and it does not overlap the text or the other way round? Either pure HTML, or wordpress or markdown. #a11y #askfedi
