So would the appropriate behavior (per W3C spec) be for the screen reader
(audio user agent) to ignore the visibility: hidden property and thus read
the text (unless is was also set at speak: none), or ignore the text?

In general screen readers should follow W3C specifications.  I think HPR
and Jaws are probably trying there best to conform to
specifications...

Audio and tactile user agents should not act on visibility, or display
properties.  Visual assistive technology should leave space for the
hidden elements, and not render display: none or its subordinates at all...
