Neither can my screen reader, in some cases I can stop the audio by
hitting "escape" but it doesn't work in this case.

Personally his having a pause button that I was able to see doesn't
help much because I'd have to go looking for it and the first thing
I would do is use my heading command and when I didn't find what I
was looking for I would close down my browser, which is exactly what I did.
