For the 'speak' property, the 'normal' value is defined as follows and followed
by a note:

   # normal
   #     The element is rendered aurally.
   #
   # Note that although the ‘none’ value of the ‘display’ property cannot be
   # overridden by descendants of the affected element, the ‘auto’ value of
   # ‘speak’ can however be overridden by descendants, using either of ‘none’
   #  or ‘normal’. In the case of ‘normal’, this would result in descendants
   #  being rendered in the aural dimension even though they would not be
   # rendered on the visual canvas.

I think you could simplify this down to

   | normal
   |    The element is rendered aurally (regardless of its 'display' value
   |    and the 'display' and 'speak' values of its ancestors).
