Changing Speed of Audio in Articulate Storyline?

I'm working on creating some Articulate Storyline projects for a class I teach.  Our current videos are MUCH less engaging and interactive and are simply the professor in front of a web camera lecturing.  One things students LOVE to do is to speed up the audio / presentation of the video.  Most students can listen and absorb items much faster than we can talk about them.  I have some audio/lecturing slides in Storyline (e.g. when I do a voice-over of a screen capture or talk about the basics of financial statements).  I'm wondering if there is anything I can add to the player that would allow students to control the speed of the audio.

Morning, just reading the full trail.  I think the original question is the question I was just asked from my SME.  They actually wanted to know if the learner could have the ability to speed up the pace of the audio they hear on each slide, not using the seek bar as they need to listen to the words, but they just wanted to listen faster than the narrator is speaking.  These are just audio files inserted onto each this is not possible correct?

I don't believe the current play has this capacity. I had the same question and the person who responded to me let me know that user-controlled speed had been submitted as a feature request.
In the meantime a work-around is to use an audio-editing software to speed up the recording and then insert that clip back into SL. But that new speed will be it. The user will not be able to speed it up or slow it down.
