Without knowing what the content entails it's a bit tricky, but I generally follow a few courses of action if I see that happening.

1. Chunk the material further. Really break down the content into component parts, which will help with figuring out how to match visuals and narration.

2. Re-evaluate the approach. If I recognize that content is forcing myself or my team to drone on and invent things to maintain visual attention, then we did something wrong. Maybe an example or scenario would solve the problem just as well as reading off tons of information (and I'd venture to say it always does). 

3. Revisit the content with the SME. Can it be written more concisely without losing context? What's really important about what needs to be said? Make sure that's all that's present. Cut the rest.
