Flash Briefing - Adding Pauses/Slowing Down Text To Speech

I've created a custom skill that allows SSML to allow me to slow down Alexa's speech with pauses. However, I've created the exact skill as a flash briefing and everyone is complaining that it is speaking too fast. Is there any way to add pauses or slow down text to speech besides punctuation? The punctuation is not enough and seems silly that flash briefing can't accept SSML.
