Default How to make silences longer?

Hi,

I have an mp3-file with spoken vocabularies in form of

german silence spanish silence,
german silence spanish silence,
german silence spanish silence,
etc.

The duration of the silences in between the words is too short for me. There are 2800 words = 5600 silences. Is there a chance to make the silences longer automatically (Macro) with REAPER or do you know an apropiate tool?

In Audacity I found a method to mark the silences ("cues"), but not a macro to jump to the marks (and put in additional silence).

I have never used REAPER so far (newbie) and I am lost in the manual.

Would anyone please give me instructions how to do the job?

Are they already split into items so that each word is its own item and the silences are gaps between items? If not, "Strip Silence" will do that part. Once you have it all split up nice, "Reposition Items" will do the gapping real easily.

Thanks for your hints, but as a newbie I am very sorry: Cannot find "Reposition Items" including silences in the documentation.

Install SWS extensions then search the action list for reposition.
It's the Xenakios SWS script.
