Chapter 27. AURAL STYLE SHEET PROPERTIES > The Cue Sub-Set of Properties

The Cue Sub-Set of Properties

Just as there is a sub-set of pause-related properties, so too is there a sub-set of cue-related properties. In this case, however, instead of attaching a pause value to a Web element, the cue essentially adds the equivalent of a "sound effect". If you wanted to add the sound of a creaking door, a doorbell, a ghostly wail or anything else you can think of, you can do so using the set of cue properties. There are three properties in this sub-set of properties: CUE-BEFORE, CUE-AFTER and CUE. The CUE-BEFORE property is designed to add a sound effect before a specific Web element, and the CUE-AFTER property adds a sound effect after a given Web element. The CUE property is a shortcut property that enables Web authors to simply set a sound effect before and/or after a given Web element. Note: when a cue property is used, the sound appears either before or after the text being read by the browser, not along with it.

CUE-BEFORE

Description: Adds a sound to be played immediately before a Web element. Good for aurally distinguishing significant parts on a Web page.
