speak: auto | none | normal

Values

  • autoResolves to a computed value of 'none' when 'display' is 'none', otherwise resolves to a computed value of 'auto' which yields a used value of 'normal'.
  • noneThis value causes an element (including pauses, cues, rests and actual content) to not be rendered (i.e., the element has no effect in the aural dimension).
  • normalThe element is rendered aurally (regardless of its 'display' value and the 'display' and 'speak' values of its ancestors).

Example

.class {
   speak:normal;
}
