Steering-wheel audio controls and Bluetooth adapters

On my 2004 Focus, I'm using a 12V Bluetooth adapter to play Audible books from my Android smartphone through my Focus's speakers. In thick traffic, I pause the book by depressing a button on the adapter. For safety, I'd like to be able to pause a book without removing my hand from the steering wheel.

I'm thinking of buying a 2007 Focus SES, one with audio controls on the steering wheel. Since the 2007 Focus lacked Bluetooth, I would still need to use an adapter. Could these controls let me pause and restart book played through a Bluetooth adapter?
