Here's an attempt to simplify the wording and sentence structure of the Intent paragraph. At the same time, I also introduced the concept that animation can, in some cases, interfere with screen readers. I've added it to the Wiki as well.

"Users with sensory or cognitive impairments may need extra time to recognize and understand the information, particularly in some time-based media. In addition, audio content can make it difficult for users to hear the synthesized speech from their screen reader utilities, and those same utilities can also be overwhelmed or confused by rapidly changing visual content. In these cases the ability to stop, pause, and resume time-based media presentation allows the user time to understand time-based content and other content around it without the time-based media interfering with their assistive technologies."


Thanks,
Greg
