Remove SpeechSynthesis.speak without user activation (removed)

This deprecation will cause speechSynthesis.speak to immediately fire an error if the document has not received user activation. This API is being abused by sites since it is one of the only remaining APIs which didn't adhere to autoplay policies in Chrome. This was deprecated in Chrome 70.
