Values:

auto | none | normal

Initial value:

auto

Applies to:

All elements

Inherited:

Yes

Computed value:

Not specified

Description:

Defines whether an element’s contents will be rendered aurally. If the value is normal, the element is aurally rendered regardless of the value of display. If the value is none, the element, including any cues, pauses, or rests associated with the element, is skipped (takes no time to be audibly rendered). However, descendant elements may override the value, causing them to be aurally rendered. The value auto resolves to none if the value of display is none; otherwise it resolves to normal.

Examples:

abbr {speak: spell-out;}
*.tel {speak: digits;}
