There isn't currently a spec that discusses ARIA and CSS generated content.
However, browsers are mostly now exposing CSS generated content as ordinary
text nodes.  Properly specifying this behavior will be part of the CSS-AAM
(Accessibility API Mappings) spec, and the general work of the new CSS
Accessibility task force.

If you have more questions on the topic, the task force-specific mailing
list would be a good place to find knowledgeable folk. More info & links
are in this email from September, describing the establishment of the group:

I don't have any data on @media speech, sorry.
