CSS 2 property: voice-family

The voice-family property is very much like the font-family property, except the voice-family is used for aural media (ie. screen readers). Like font-family, this uses 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 (ie. child, male, female) 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.

Property Values

The voice-family accepts the following values:

  • inherit
  • male|female|child
  • <specific voice>

Example

Good
<style type="text/css">
     selector { voice-family: value; }
</style>
...
<element attribute="foo">Contents</element>
