Crissov has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [MQ] Discover muted state ==
Most media queries are about graphics, video, color and other display characteristics. Since [_media types_](https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-5/#media-type) have been found to be too broad to be useful, the sound-related `speech` and `aural` are among the deprecated ones. 

However, even if your styles only cover visual aspects, it can still be useful to know whether the user will hear any sounds on the site at all, e.g. when deciding whether (and how) to show video subtitles automatically. I therefore propose a new media query for that, e.g.:

- `sound-volume: mute | quiet | loud | auto`
