5.1.3.4: Speech output user control

Where speech output is provided as non-visual access to closed functionality, the speech output shall be capable of being interrupted and repeated when requested by the user, where permitted by security requirements.

Notes

  1. It is best practice to allow the user to pause speech output rather than just allowing them to interrupt it.
  2. It is best practice to allow the user to repeat only the most recent portion rather than requiring play to start from the beginning.
