CSS - pause-after


The pause-after property defines the duration of a silent pause to be inserted after the content of an element.

Possible Values

  • time − Any time value (e.g., 300ms); the pause will be the length of time specified.

  • percentage − The length of the pause is dictated by the value of speech-rate. Thus, pause-after: 33% would yield 167ms if the speech rate is two words per second (120 words per minute), and 333ms if it's one word per second (60 words per minute).

DOM Syntax

object.style.pauseAfter = "300ms";

Applies to

All the HTML elements


Here is the example −

<style type = "text/css">
      table {pause-after: 1500ms;}
      li {pause-after: 50%;}
