How to generate a voiceover

2. Enter the text you want to convert to speech in the text box and click Generate.

3. Your generated voiceover will show up in the My Voiceovers tab. To download it, click the download icon. Every voiceover you generate will be saved here, and, with a subscription to a plan that includes voiceover, in your Library's Download History, ready for you to download as many times as you like, whenever you like.

To try our a different voice, go back to the Voice Catalog, select a voice and enter your text.

If you want to get a different result, you can simply click Generate again, as each time you generate a voiceover, the output will be slightly different. You can also adjust the Voice Settings, then generate your voiceover again.

 

Tips to generate the best AI voiceover

Pronunciation of words

If you aren’t happy with the pronunciation, first check that the word is spelled correctly. If it looks good, try to find an alternative spelling, write it out more phonetically, or use punctuation for emphasis. The different voices pronounce words differently, so try out a few until you find one that fits your needs.

Pauses

There are a few ways to add a pause and impact the rhythm of the speech. You can add a comma (,) or an ellipsis (...). Or, if you want more control over the length of your pause, copy and paste this formula: <break time="1.5s" />. You can replace “1.5” with the desired length of the pause, in seconds.

Other languages

The voiceover generator works best in English. If you enter text in a different language, it may work but not as smoothly as in English.

Numbers and symbols

Write out numbers, symbols, and acronyms fully to ensure that the AI has the most context and provides the correct pronunciation.

Express emotion

To make your voiceover convey a specific emotion, you can write out your text in a style similar to that of a book, using quotation marks and mentioning the desired emotion.

For example:
“Are we almost there yet?” he said, fed up.

“Be patient!” he shouted, annoyed.

This will help the AI better understand the context of your text, and therefore create a result that’s closer to your vision. When editing your video, you’ll need to cut out the extra words, as the AI will read out the text exactly as you’ve written it.

 

How to adjust the voiceover settings and generate a voiceover

The voiceover generator lets you adjust the settings in order to achieve a result that better matches your vision. You can adjust your voiceover for:

  • Emotional range: A more flat emotional range will give you more consistency between each voiceover you generate. A more expressive emotional range will give you less consistency.
  • Similarity to original voice: A higher similarity will make the voiceover better match the original voice. Note that setting it too high can cause distortions and errors.
  • Style boost: A higher setting will exaggerate the style of the original voice in terms of pace, tone, accent, and more, but will give you less consistency between each voiceover you generate.
