Maximum response latency of streamUrl request

The docs states that "Response latency should be less than 1 second".

Is this only for the RSS itself, or also for the streamUrl request?

I'm trying to implement an audio RSS but my streamUrl streams the audio on-demand, dictating from a text stored in AWS DynamoDB using AWS Polly. I'm doing this because it's in a language not yet supported by Alexa (but supported by Polly).

But I'm afraid it's taking more than a second to start the stream (polly processing overhead). I don't want to pre-process all text and save mp3 files in S3 (or wherever), because that will cost me extra $.

Thanks,

Danilo

I'd test it on your own device. If it loads you should be OK, response latency refers to RSS although I would minimize latency as much as possible on your file.
