    Feature request - Delay speech

    Ok, this may be stupid, or there may be another way or existing way of doing this, but I was wondering if there was a way for BLSpeech to delay a speak command (by seconds). Perhaps using a special processing tag?

    I know that if I did an "action" for it in my event, I could just delay the action, but for my locks I have 1 script that does multiple things. One of those things is speak "Welcome home, [Name]". However, it happens so fast that the person walking in may only hear "[Name]".

    I could just delay the script, and if that is the suggested route, I will take it. I can't think of too many other uses for delaying the speech like that.

    I just thought I guess I could also create a .wav file with no sound for X seconds and just tell it to prepend that.

    Not necessarily related to BLSpeech but there is a SAPI5 tag which you can add silence to your speech text:

    <silence msec='1000'/>Hello World

    This would delay the speech by 1 second before speaking "Hello World".

      You could try what Jon mentioned.
      If you are using the speaker and zone switching in BLSpeech I believe there is a delay option for that but not positive

      I could also add another special tag for this. You will need to put in a feature request for that
      Cheers,

        No need as the SAPI5 tag worked great!
