I believe this sort of functionality is at least implemented
in the JAWS screen reader for MS Windows. At least I remember
them being proud about the ability of the user to choose behaviour
for abbrev (or was that acronym?) tags, if they are used. I
somehow fail to see how aural CSS is used here, isnt abbrev (or
acronym, to lazy to look up) just a html 4.0 tag?

and will do so and report back. I wonder if they use aCSS.
