Make videos more engaging with text-to-speech

Adding a voiceover to make your videos more accessible and engaging can sometimes be a hassle. You no longer need to create a voice over or import text to speech from a different application. Kapwing streamlines this process so you have an all-in-one workspace to edit and add text-to-speech files to videos. With Kapwing’s Text-to-Speech tool, it takes just a few clicks to automatically generate voiceovers. Simply type out your text and a realistic-sounding AI voice will read it out for you.

How to Add Text-to-Speech Voiceovers to Video

Add Text-to-Speech
  1. Upload your video

    Start by uploading your video directly from your computer or by pasting a video URL link.

  2. Convert Text to Speech

    Add text to your video and click the Text to Speech button, then choose your narrator. This will add an automated voiceover to your video.

  3. Export and Share

    After you’re done editing, export your video and share with the world! You can download a file of your project or share directly to social media on TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, and more.

Make your videos more accessible with Text-to-Speech. In one click.

Picture this: you’re scrolling through TikTok or Instagram Reels on your phone and come across a video with a Reddit story. These stories on Reddit are usually blocks and blocks of text. You’re bound to scroll right past it, right? So, how do you get people to watch your video and read this 500-word Reddit thread?

Here’s the secret: they don’t read. That’s where text-to-speech comes in.

An AI voice generator, without the complicated stuff

Text-to-Speech (TTS) is a type of assistive technology that reads digital text aloud, so that the user can understand and enjoy the content they’re watching regardless of any visual impairments. You may know this text-to-speech technology by other terms like “text-to-voice” or “read aloud technology.” You can find a text-to-speech feature on word- processing or presentation softwares such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Docs, and more.

Using text-to-speech features shouldn’t be difficult or confusing. Sometimes, we as creators don’t want to use our own voice in a voiceover narration, or we want to make sure our content is accessible to everyone who lays their eyes on it. That’s why we’ve developed this feature to make it easy for anyone to add text-to-speech to any video.

Today, most content creators use text-to-speech on TikTok or YouTube for “storytimes” or “How-to” video tutorials. You can use text-to-speech to add an AI-generated voiceover to any video while also selecting the type of voice you want to use. With Kapwing’s Text-to-Speech feature, the only thing you need to do is click the “Text-to-Speech” button. Let the voice generator do the rest of the talking.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
