That's right. You'll find it in Settings Center under Speech options. You'll hear "less speech options" and it will probably say "speech on demand." Typing the word "less" without the quotes in the search edit field will find this keystroke. Press the space key to set this to "speech mute." You should probably first press shift-ctrl-D after going into Settings Center if you want this keystroke to behave the same way in all applications.
As an aside you can go into Keyboard Manager and add an alternative keystroke if you want. I did this and chose shift-alt-M as my Mute/Unmute toggle. Again, make sure you're in the list of default keystrokes if you want this shortcut key to be available in all applications.
