Rendering document content

  Document structure is implicitly conveyed in audio renderings by using audio layout made up of extra-textual speech and non-speech audio cues. The following subsections describe this audio layout and outline the rules for producing such renderings from the internal representation described in s:high-level-models.

The following paragraphs clarify the above definitions by giving some examples of fleeting and persistent cues.
