Help with Mac OS Sierra

macOS and Mac Apps

I just upgraded to Mac OS Sierra and discovered I lost the ability to mute Voiceover with the 'Ctrl' key and the use of phonetics when I interact with text and pause on a character. Are the options I need to set in Voiceover Utility or System Preferences? If so, where?
Any help will be great. Thanks.

HI. the control key works fine here to mute voiceover. not sure about your other problem.

Yeah it happens here, I just use two-finger tap on the trackpad to stop speech. Sometimes it works to press the control key, that seems inconsistent but when reading a lengthy text the issue appears to come up.
