Hello!

Use SSML tags in your text to control speech rate and other speech attributes.

Please refer to this convenient demo for experimenting with SSML tags - 

https://sitepal.com/documentation/fine_tuning

And try the following text sample - 

This is normal speech <prosody rate="slow"> this is speaking slowly </prosody> <prosody rate="fast"> this is speaking fast </prosody> back to normal.
Let's try more precise control. First, let's use relative values:
This is normal speech <prosody rate="-30%"> this is speaking slowly </prosody> <prosody rate="+40%"> this is speaking fast </prosody> back to normal.
Now absolute values:
This is normal speech <prosody rate="60%"> this is speaking slowly </prosody> <prosody rate="140%"> this is speaking fast </prosody> back to normal.


Notes: 

* different voices may interpret tags differently - so best to experiment and identify what works best with the voice of your choice. Specifically - some voices may work well with relative values, others with absolute values.

* certain voices do not support SSML tags at all - and are thus not included in this "fine tuning" demo. If a voice is not available in the demo, that would be the reason. Specifically - all engine 2 and engine 4 voices do not support SSML tags.

Hope this helps, best,
