[Additional notes]:
- Screencast showing the issue attached.
I'm having a hard time reproducing what you see. I think it is because narrate is not in play state when it scrolls, and it will automatically close in that case. The actual scroll is being done by narrate to go to the next paragraph. So it is in an interesting state where narrate is not playing anymore, but the scroll from the previous play makes the dialog go away.

In any case, this issue will go away along with bug 1255261 because stop/play will no longer advance the currently read paragraph.
I'm probably going to mark this as WORKSFORME once bug 1255261 is resolved.
