Screen reader constantly announces time stamps when focus is on the Seekbar

In the new accessible player, when using the NVDA screen reader, if the keyboard focus is on the player seekbar while the timeline is playing, the screen reader will constantly announce the timestamp. This makes it impossible to clearly hear slide audio. Can anyone else replicate this issue? If so, hopefully it can be resolved as soon as possible.
