CSS - speak-header


The speak-header property is used in aural media to specify whether table headers are spoken before each cell, or only before each cell if that cell uses a different header to the previous cell.

Possible Values

  • once − Headers will only be read once.

  • always − The contents of the header will be spoken as the preface to every related cell in the table.

DOM Syntax

object.style.speakHeader = "once";

Applies to

All the elements that have table header information.


Here is the example −

<style type = "text/css">
      table {speak-header: once;}
      th.urgent {speak-header: always;}
