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.
Start by uploading your video directly from your computer or by pasting a video URL link.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
