Can you create a longer audio silence between captions

Hoping someone has a trick...

I am converting several captions on a slide using text to speech.  Since this creates one long audio stream it goes way to fast for the reader to keep up and there isn't any real pause before going to the next caption. 

 

Is there a way to easily put in a pause/silence  before the next caption?  Periods and commas don't slow down the narration hardly at all. 

 

I have seen that I can edit the audio and "Insert Silence" but that is very time consuming and would require redoing it ever time there is a change to the script.

You'll need to insert a pause tag where you want the pause.

 

<vtml_pause time=”1000″/>

 

Note that the number is in milliseconds.

Sorry, but I just started using Captivate, how/where do I insert a tag? Ok, figured it out. Just in case there is another newbie.....Open Speech Management and just place it in the text where ever you want it. I would think that would be something everyone could use, I'm surprised there isn't an "Insert Silence" button like on the Edit Audio screen that helps you with this. If it wasn't for your help I would have never known. Thanks!!!!!!
