Using CTRL in "user presses a key" trigger on a mac

I've built a transcription task and used a trigger to pause/play the audio by defining two keyboard shortcuts - one for pause, one for play. The two keys in question ideally need to be next to each other on the keyboard, so I've gone for Ctrl + [ and Ctrl + ]. So when a user presses Ctrl + [ the audio begins to play, when they press ctrl + ] it pauses so that they can type and catch up.

One user has reported that this key combination threw them out of the course on the LMS and I've found that Cmd [ and Cmd ] are the shortcuts for back/forward in a browser in Mac OS. 

When I define a shortcut involving Ctrl, would that "translate" as Cmd for mac users? Cos Macs do have Ctrl keys, right?
