-  <p>The aural rendering of a document combines speech synthesis (also known
-   as "TTS", the acronym for "Text to Speech") and auditory icons (which we
-   refer to as "audio cues" in this specification). The aural presentation of
-   information is common amongst communities of users who are blind or
-   visually-impaired. For instance, "screen readers" enable control of visual
-   user-interfaces that would otherwise be inaccessible. There are other
-   cases whereby listening to textual information (as opposed to reading it)
-   is a necessity. Typical examples include in-car use of an e-book reader,
-   industrial and medical documentation systems, home entertainment, helping
-   users to learn reading, or supporting users who have reading difficulties
-   (print disabilities).

+   physical ability to access information. For instance: playing an e-book

-  <p> Content creators can conditionally include CSS properties dedicated to

   <p> The CSS Speech module is a re-work of the informative CSS2.1 Aural
    appendix, within which the "aural" media type was described, but also
    deprecated (in favor of the "speech" media type). Although the <a
    href="#CSS21" rel=biblioentry>[CSS21]<!--{{!CSS21}}--></a> specification
    reserves the "speech" media type, it doesn't actually define the
-   corresponding properties. This module describes the CSS properties that

     <p>CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a language that describes the rendering of markup documents

-    <p>The aural rendering of a document combines speech synthesis (also known as "TTS", the acronym

-      specification). The aural presentation of information is common amongst communities of users
-      who are blind or visually-impaired. For instance, "screen readers" enable control of visual
-      user-interfaces that would otherwise be inaccessible. There are other cases whereby listening
-      to textual information (as opposed to reading it) is a necessity. Typical examples include
-      in-car use of an e-book reader, industrial and medical documentation systems, home
-      entertainment, helping users to learn reading, or supporting users who have reading
-      difficulties (print disabilities). </p>

-      TTS voice, pitch, rate, and volume levels). These style sheet properties can be used together
-      with visual properties (mixed media), or as a complete aural alternative to a visual

-    <p> Content creators can conditionally include CSS properties dedicated to user-agents with text

-        <code>@media</code> at-rule, or within an <code>@import</code> statement. When doing so, the
