M-x emacspeak-play-all-icons has always done this. 

Personally I dont consider it very useful for what you are asking
for i.e. "learning the icons".

As designed, the icons are supposed to "grow on you" you're not
supposed to have to memorize them conciously.

If you really want to play them one at a time and see what each
one sounds like, write yourself a little for loop at the shell.
