pitch-range

Definition

The perceived pitch of a human voice is determined by the fundamental frequency, and typically has a value of 120Hz for a male voice and 210Hz for a female voice. Inflexions and changes in pitch are used in human language to convey additional meaning and emphasis. Thus, a highly animated voice, or one that is heavily inflected, displays a high pitch range. The pitch-range property specifies the range over which these variations may occur.

Example

  1. p {pitch-range: 50}
