Add ending offset for audio playback

Currently, we can specify the starting offset for audio playback, which is great. I would like to request that we can optionally specify an ending offset. This would allow Alexa to play a snippet of audio from an audio file.

I'm sure there are many scenarios where a developer would want to do this. I've seen the question asked a few times in the forums. I have a specific need to play subsets of audio files based on a users request. This would be a great help.

I also think this would be a good idea! Would definitely help polish a Skill I'm developing so that the audio doesn't abruptly start when using an offset
