I agree with @MatsPalmgren's comments in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/6040#issuecomment-805485843 . The `speak-as` descriptor is fundamentally about how to read the counter out loud. It may or may not be applicable to other AT output, it really depends on the output and what it's capable of.

I pushed some edits to make this clearer. Basically, the idea is that the counter-style overall defines a visual representation, with `speak-as` defining its speech representation, and AT outputting to another medium should be allowed to use either form or some synthesis informed by both. So I've added the following text to clarify this (r=@tabatkins):

> Assistive technologies should use this spoken form when reading out the counter style, and may use the 'speak-as' value to inform transformations to outputs other than speech.

@dot-miniscule @xiaochengh @MatsPalmgren Let us know if this works for you?
