Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is widely used when developing a web page. It can be used in both layout and styling. However it is meaningless for the blinds. So are there any styles for the blinds?

Aural Cascading Style Sheets (ACSS) is the answer. Actually ACSS is not a new technology. It can be viewed as an add-on to the original CSS. The following are the commands supported by ACSS.

voice-family
speech-rate
pitch
pitch-range
stress
richness

By means of these commands, the speech produced by the disables assisting browsers like JAWS that I previously mentioned can be “styled”.

For example the following will make the browser reading the text in a woman high pitch voice.

Phantom of the Opera. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~~~~
