How can I add a longer pause between words?

To mimic natural pauses, use commas(,), periods(.), or ellipses ─ sets of three periods ( . . . ):

  • Commas create subtle pauses, enhancing predictability.
  • Periods ​create a pause plus a downward inflection. They are best used to break a long sentence up into two pieces, allowing the Synthetic Voice to better predict which words to emphasize.
  • You can also add a combination of ellipses, parenthesis included (.......) after a word to give you "breathing" room.
