Add a pause to a TTS anouncement

I know for Alexa tts you add something like To have it pause in a sentence. Is there anything like this for cloudsay? When I tried it, it just ended up reading it out loud.

How do you add a pause to alexa tts?

You can add this in the sentence where you want a pause:

<break time=".6s" />

That’s the same format used in the Azure TTS engine that Cloud Say uses: azure-docs/ at c375aeee4ea14310c0bd71af8645ef665266fa92 · MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs · GitHub

However it looks like it does not work in the home assistant implementation.
