Mozilla "supports" it -- it ignores anything in an @media aural rule. I believe 
MacIE, WinIE and Opera also support @media.

If you mean "which browsers support the aural properties" then that's a 
different question... if by "support" you mean "store in the DOM" then WinIE 
does, if you mean "cascade and compute and store in the DOM" then Mozilla does, 
if you mean "renders the content using an audio output device affected by the 
aural properties" then EmacsSpeak does, and if you mean "does exactly what the 
spec says should happen" then no-one does.
