    Allow for the user to talk for a longer period of time, and allow brief pauses.

    I know these two issues have been previously raised separately. My goal is to provide another use case covering both and remind Alexa team of the relevance of these feature requests.

    I've recently published my skill called "Run My Lines", allowing actors to learn their lines using Alexa (https://runlines.me/). I've promoted it on several internet forum visited by actors, including Reddit and Mandy (see links below), and received very positive feedback.

    However I am also aware of some critical limitations of Alexa around user input, which prevent it from being fully useful. This includes:
    - allowing users to have a pause between sentences (Alexa thinks it's over after a very brief pause),
    - allowing users to speak for a longer amount of time (I believe there's a limit of 8 seconds or so?)

    Due to current limitations the skill is unfortunately limited in its practicality, as most lines will be longer than a few seconds and contain several sentences (hence short pauses).
