We will not explain here what is a face in Emacs. The reader should learn it in Emacs documentation but roughly speaking it represents certain text characteristics like italic or bold or thing like that. User may want that such properties are voicified. Most of the time face is set by the mode control functions without any user action. In AUCTeX for instance, formulas and text are not displayed with the same face causing them to be displayed with different colors. It is hence legitimate to voicify them with different voices.
