Reproducible on latest Aurora 45.0a2 (buildID: 20160110004009)

Steps to reproduce:

2. Go to http://eeejay.github.io/webspeechdemos/ . 
3. Click the "Speak it" button. 
4. Click the "Pause/Resume" button. 
5. Click the "Cancel" or the "Interrupt" button and then click again the "Speak it" button. 

Actual results: 
1. The "Pause/Resume" button doesn't work. Nothing happens by clicking on it. 
2. After clicking on the "Cancel" or "Interrupt" button, the "Speak it" button doesn't work anymore and speech synthesis doesn't start.

Notes: The issue is NOT reproducible on Windows 7 64 and Mac OSX 10.9.5.

Pause and Resume is unimplemented on speechd backend.
This is a known issue that is a limitation of speechd itself.
