Syntax

stress: <number> | inherit

Values

  • <number>A value, between '0' and '100'. The meaning of values depends on the language being spoken. For example, a level of '50' for a standard, English-speaking male voice (average pitch = 122Hz), speaking with normal intonation and emphasis would have a different meaning than '50' for an Italian voice.
  • inherit

Example

p {stress: 85;}
