from the Plum Voice IVR Glossary
The break tag in a VoiceXML application instructs the TTS engine to insert a pause into synthesized text, with the length of the pause being a user-specified time value determined either in milliseconds or as a predetermined size value. The break tag has two attributes: size and time. Size indicates one of four possible settings: none (which means no pause), small (which indicates a two second pause), medium (which indicates a 5 second pause), and large (which indicates a 10 second pause). The time attribute indicates a duration of time specified with the appropriate measurement. Developers must input a numeric value within this attribute in order for it to execute properly. Without specified attributes, a break tag will insert a default length brief break in the text.
