Pretty good, but I would say, take the sentence
   "Computed absolute frequency values that are negative are clamped to zero Hertz."
out of the value definitions and prepend it to the "Speech-capable user agents"
paragraph. Then move that entire thing after the property value definition list,
since it's better to get an overview of the values first before describing this
detail.

# absolute
#   This keyword specifies that the provided frequency is expressed as an absolute,
#   positive value. When a negative value is provided, it is clamped to zero.

For the first sentence:
   s/provided/specified/
   s/positive//
   s/is expressed as/represents/
Change the second sentence to
   If a negative frequency is specified, the computed frequency will be zero.
which is a little more accurate as to which values are affected how.
