Chapter 21. Aural Cascading Style Sheets > Pause Sub-Set of Properties

21.3. Pause Sub-Set of Properties

The sub-set of pause-related properties is designed to stop speech briefly immediately before or after a specific Web element, lending emphasis to the sentence being spoken by the Web browser. There are three properties in this sub-set: pause-before, pause-after and pause. The pause-before property is designed to stop speech briefly before a specific Web element, and the pause-after property does the same, but instead stops speech immediately after a given Web element. The pause property is a shortcut property that enables Web authors to simply set a pause before and/or after a given Web element.

This particular set of aural sub-properties is meant to let Web authors better imitate the natural rhythm of human speech, and to lend further emphasis to the text being read by the browser.
