I think this is different than screen readers not speaking display:none
text. Both hiding layout frames and silencing screen readers only affect
the 'rendering' of the contained text, it doesn't otherwise deactivate
the contained display:none elements:
<style> elements that are display:none still have their stylesheets
applied to the document.
<script> elements still execute.
Formcontrols are still submitted.
<iframe>s are still loaded.
I think these examples are much more similar to the <video> element and
its produced sound.
