I'm outputting SSML speech to Alexa with very short/small mp3s (1 to 4 seconds long, ranging from 5 to 20 kb in size). Occasionally, when I hear it play back, the mp3s will cut off right in the middle.
Example 1: `<audio src="..." />` - cuts off halfway in.
Also, some of our speechlets contain both of mp3s plus text that the Alexa voice is supposed to speak. In those cases, not only does the mp3 cut off, the Alexa voice text is never reached.
Example 2: `<audio src="..."/><audio src="..." /> How else can I help?` - cuts halfway into the first mp3.
If these speechlets kick off dialogs (or are in the middle of dialogs), a user can still interact/respond, but this is not obvious at all because the actual content of my dialog requires that the full mp3s play and the speechlet is complete.
Though, much of the time everything is fine (the full mp3s do play, and the Alexa voice text is reached).
