I  was initially rather confused about the interactions between the "aural box model" and the "visual box model" when reading the speech draft (<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-speech/>) because I wasn't thinking about the speech media type.

I think the spec needs to mention the speech media type in the introduction, and how this impacts which properties can influence the spoken presentation of a page. A link to a table of CSS properties, and their media types, would be useful.

It strikes me that a if a web browser implements Speech, it will need to support multiple presentations of the document at the same time. I'd be interested to hear if there are any implementations of Speech yet, given this level of complexity.
