The CSS voice-family property indicates a comma-separated, prioritized list (left to right in decreasing priority) of specific and/or generic voice family names. At least one specific or general voice family must be given and it is wise to include a generic voice family as well in case the user does not have any of the specific voices listed. If no match is made, the browser default voice family should be used.

male A generic male voice.

<specific voice> This value is a string identifying a specific voice on the user's system. Names containing white spaces should be quoted.
