Opera 8.0 supports (most of) the CSS3 Speech module, as well as the media  
type 'speech'. As a fallback, also stylesheets served with the media type  
'aural' are supported. There is, as Bert Bos points out in another reply,  
only very few implementations of the CSS2.1 'aural' properties:  
implementations of CSS3 Speech properties, with support for media type  
'speech', are encouraged.
