Please see the archives for the ICADD discussion. One of the goals of adding
ICADD support to HTML 2.0 is to support Braille, large print and voice
synthesis. The voice generator can use the ICADD tag to add appropriate

I'm new to the field and so appologize in advance for putting my foot
in my mouth but --
-- has anyone thought of including a way in HTML for inserting optional
prosodic markers before important text elements? I envision a string
of "/____-__-___\" or something like that to tell a voice gen browser
how to inflect the next phrase (rather than using it's defaults),
thus identifying links in the document for those who can't see
the screen.
I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to come up with a short
list of recommended prosidic marker defaults for most common text
