He thinks there is a pause button. Problem is I can't see it.

Hi Carin

Cant answer your question but while you have his ear let him
know about this accessibility error:

1.4.2: Audio Control:

If any audio on a Web page plays automatically for more than 3
seconds, either a mechanism is available to pause or stop the audio,
or a mechanism is available
to control audio volume independently from the overall system volume
level. (Level A)

Note: Since any content that does not meet this success criterion can
interfere with a user's ability to use the whole page, all content on
the Web page
(whether or not it is used to meet other success criteria) must meet
this success criterion. See Conformance Requirement 5: Non-Interference.

Understanding 1.4.2: Audio Control: (A)
