Chapter 21. Aural Cascading Style Sheets

Chapter 21. Aural Cascading Style Sheets

Topics in This Chapter

One of the most significant innovations instituted in the CSS2 specification is the introduction of aural style sheets. With aural style sheets, you can now set the way a Web page should sound. More specifically, aural style sheet properties are designed to tell the Web browser how it should read aloud the text on a Web page. Using the various aural style sheet properties available under CSS2, Web masters can set the type of voice to be played, where the sound should be placed within the stereo sound field, set pauses and cues, add sound effects, move the sound around in the soundscape and even determine whether the voice should be female or male. Using the aural style sheet properties (also known as “ACSS”), you can easily make the Web browser your stage and your text the players upon it.
