Because web pages, and even things like Word documents, are
written for a specific locale, or country.  That's how, for
example, a spelling checker knows how to use an American
English or British English spelling checker.  This
information is held in an the file.

JAWS now incorporates a language detector which will change
synthesiser language accordingly.  Going from say English to
Spanish is an easy change, but from American English to
British English can be a shade spooky.
