This is not the perfect solution to the problem, however the behavior of the manipulate is improved over what it was in the original question. Thanks to all who looked at this and to those that left comments, especially David Park who gave me the choiceEnabled =True/False. As for this answer I feel like one of the keys was to place the Speak and Pause statements after the graphics, forcing the program to read through the graphics before encountering the Pause.


Manipulate[
 Pane[Column[{Text[
     Row[If[n < 2, {Spacer[160],
        Style[nnames[[n]], Bold, Large, Hue[RandomReal[]]],
        Style[" Ball", Bold, Large, Green]}, {Spacer[160],
        Style[nnames[[n]], Bold, Large, Hue[RandomReal[]]],
        Style[" Balls", Bold, Large, Green]}]]],
    Row[Table[
      Graphics[{Darker[Green], Disk[],
        Text[Style[numerals[[r]], Orange, "Label", 48], {0, 0}]}], {r,
        1, n}]], Speak[n], Pause[1], choiceEnabled = True;},
   BaseStyle -> {LinebreakAdjustments -> {1., 10, 0, 0, 10}}], {525,
   300}], Row[{Button[
    " Start \n ", {If[n < 2,
      "", {n = 1, Speak["lets count the numbers 1 to 9 out loud"],
       choiceEnabled = False}]}, Enabled -> Dynamic[choiceEnabled]],
   Spacer[55],
   Button[
    "\[FilledLeftTriangle]\[FilledLeftTriangle] Start Over", {If[
      n < 2, "", {n = 1, choiceEnabled = False}]},
    Enabled -> Dynamic[choiceEnabled]],
   Button[
