Response from the Working Group
WCAG just says that a mechanism needs to be provided. Whether something is
obvious is not testable - although good practice would be to do this of
course.   In this case you can point to any of the 5 buttons OR point to the
image itself to pause it.

For the animated text bar, there is actually a pause button shown.
