What you want is for playback to pause conditionally, if the voice synthesis
hasn't finished, and the continue automatically when voice synthesis has
finished. Since pause-on-exit always pauses and never unpauses, it's not a good
fit. Anyway, the requirements are pretty clear, but it's less clear how to
integrate it with voice synthesis, since that's unlikely to be made part of the
browser. Are there standard voice synth interfaces on the major desktop
platforms that can tell the application when it is done synthing a particular
piece of text?
