As I had to look it up anyway, here is a quote from 

"The aural rendering of a document, already commonly used by the blind and 
print-impaired communities, combines speech synthesis and "auditory icons." 
Often such aural presentation occurs by converting the document to plain text 
and feeding this to a screen reader -- software or hardware that simply reads 
all the characters on the screen. This results in less effective presentation 
than would be the case if the document structure were retained. Style sheet 
properties for aural presentation may be used together with visual properties 
(mixed media) or as an aural alternative to visual presentation."
