Screen readers tend to see themselves as literally readers of the
screen, not audio browsers. That's the reason I've been given that
they don't recognise aural stylesheets, and do recognise CSS things
like display:none;

Given the state of the web in general, I can sympathise with that
view, however unintuitive it is for developers.
