Why should an html element have a valid value for its lang attribute?

Screen readers support a large number of languages, for each of which they have a library of sounds that allow the words to be pronounced correctly. If a web page indicates which language content should be read, screen readers are able to switch between the various libraries.

A valid BCP 47 language for the <html> element must be indicated in order to be sure that the page's content pronunciation is correct.
