The speak property is used in CSS and certain HTML elements. This property specifies whether content will be aurally rendered, and the nature of its rendering. It controls aural rendering in much the same way as the display property controls visual rendering, with the only difference being that you hear this property instead of seeing it.


Value Description
inherit Explicitly sets the value of this property to that of the parent.
normal Uses normal pronunciation rules for the current language to render content.
none Suppresses/skips aural rendering of the element. No time is taken to render the element. Child elements can override this value.
spell-out Spells the content one character at a time (useful with acronyms and abbreviations).

HTML example:

<acronym style="speak:spell-out;">HTML</acronym>

CSS example:

acronym {
