    You could send "open" intents to @Voice using package name com.hyperionics.avar, to open some files or web links in it, but so far nobody needed to control Play/Pause that way. You can control Play/Pause in @Voice app with the button at the bottom, with the button in @Voice notification, from the lock screen, from external Bluetooth or wired headsets... There is even an optional floating button widget that you may install and have a button anywhere on the screen... You can also control start/pause with the phone motion sensor (shake)... From smart watches you can press Play/Pause as well, when @Voice is reading something. Why would you need Tasker to do this as well?

    Sorry, I thought that there is one. No pause required, just play. Cause sometimes other apps grabbed the media button after I used it, I just wanna switch back to @voice without turn on my screen, and the trigger shake is too complicated for me, also is not reliable, and it's stupid.. visually. sorry, I can't shake.

    What exactly do you mean by "other apps grabbed the media button", could you please explain? Does it mean for example, that the Play/Pause button on your headset no longer works with @Voice, after some other app played an audio briefly? Or something else?
     
    And, if you don't want to unlock the phone or even press a button on a log screen, how else would you start your tasker function to make @Voice play again?
