New Pause Settings
Adding pauses to your audio is now faster and scalable. Check out the new features:
- Easier Way To Add A Pause

- Pause Duration Settings
You can now define the pause durations you want for a comma or a period and save them as a setting. The values will be applied to your entire text, making the process of adding pauses way more efficient. The’ve also added a Settings section where you can save the pause values and they’ll be applied to any new audio you create.
A few voices in some of the languages were not respecting pauses for commas and periods such as Norwegian and Polish for example. However, they’ve fixed this issue and you should now be able to use voices in these languages. If you’ve ever wondered what Play.ht looks like on a WordPress page, check out the audio player above.
