I want to know the duration of a speech translated with SSML in order to be able to mix it correctly with audio via APLA (beta: 0.8).
Thank you for your help.

Hello and thanks for posting.
Can you please elaborate? Do you need to retrieve the duration of a certain audio file within your skill code?
I believe Patrick wants to obtain the duration of the Alexa speech which results from SSML provided by his skill with the aim of using this to mix the speech with audio using APLA (I guess he wants to truncate the audio to match the speech length).
I did hear that some such feature was due in a forthcoming APLA release but I know you can't comment on roadmaps.
This wouldn't be possible at the moment.
I'd suggest posting it as a feature request in Uservoice for Alexa over here.
