Is it possible to add a ring back tone during the fax autodetect pause?

I have followed "Elastix Without Tears" for fax auto detect on a POTS line. However I had to change the "Pause After Answer" field to 6 seconds otherwise incoming calls were directly going to voicemail instead of the fax extension. Now there is a brief period of silence before the call goes to voice mail (for non fax calls). Is there a way to insert a ringback tone for this autodetect period?

Thanks

I stopped using zaptel for detecting faxes and installed NVfax as it has background detect so no silence period

The NVfax files are on this forum just do a search

This is exactly what I wanted. Works perfect.

However changing the pause time seems to have no effect with NV Fax. Is that normal?

Thanks.

The pause time will still have some effect as it is how long to listen for the generated tones from fax

I still have mine set to 6 as when I lowered some faxes would slip through and then had to transfer them using the ##ext
