    If you’ve been exploring the app’s video editing possibilities, you might wonder how to dub a TikTok video. This guide has got you covered.

    How to dub a TikTok video

    TikTok has recently seen popularity unparalleled by any other social media app. Many factors went into this impressive growth, but the variety of content was undoubtedly one of the leading contributors. On the TikTok app, you’ll find videos on everything from simple jokes and puns to highly educational videos and tutorials.

    Regardless of the content, the video editing tools allow TikTok users to make excellent end products that quickly catch the viewer’s attention. You can add text, video and voice effects, filters, and stickers. You can also adjust the video to either match a trending sound or your original audio. In the latter case, you can talk directly to the camera or dub your video clip while showing other footage.

    In this article, you’ll learn how dubbing works on TikTok and the best way to dub your videos.

    What is TikTok and how does it work?

    TikTok is a video-based platform derived from Musical.ly, an app where users lip-synced to audio clips. TikTok has significantly expanded the possibilities for creation, especially in terms of video editor functionalities. On TikTok, you can play with many filters, sounds, transitions, templates, animations, graphics, and more.

    For this reason, TikTok shares little resemblance to older platforms, even though some people have labeled TikTok this generation’s Vine. The only similar feature these two apps have is a scrolling video feed.

    TikTok also makes it easy to discover new creators by showcasing their videos on your For You page. Any video can blow up practically overnight with the help of a few trending hashtags and duets. Adding captions or dubbing the videos for international audiences can help further expand their reach.

    While you’ll find incredibly short and catchy videos with comments like “Vine energy,” most content on TikTok is free-form and embraces various video formats. Dubbed videos are a format that has become particularly popular recently with the introduction of different voice effects.

    Dubbing a video on TikTok

    Dubbing a video on TikTok is straightforward. The only thing to note is that you’ll need a cell phone since dubbing can’t be done on TikTok’s web and computer clients.

    Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating your first dubbed video:

    1. Launch the TikTok app.
    2. Press the plus icon at the bottom of the screen.
    3. In the pop-up screen, tap the red button to start recording.
    4. After recording the desired videos, tap the checkmark next to the red button.
    5. Select the “Audio editing” option on the right side of the screen.
    6. Long-press the red “Record” button to record your voice-over.
    7. Check the “Replace original sound with recording option” at the bottom.
    8. Press “Save” in the upper-right corner of your screen.

    After touching up the video in the editing screen, you can publish it by pressing the “Next” and “Post” buttons.

    You can also dub a TikTok video with your own sound that you’ve previously recorded outside the app. Alternatively, you can use sounds from YouTube videos or Instagram Reels.

    All you need to do is upload the video containing the desired audio as a private TikTok video. Then, you can use the sound for your new video.

    If you don’t want to use your voice, you can alter it with one of TikTok’s audio effects. You can find the effects next to the “Record” button in the “Audio editing” window.

    Finally, you can type text on the screen and have it read out by TikTok’s built-in text to speech tool. To achieve this, follow these steps:

    1. Repeat Steps 1-4 above to record your video.
    2. Tap the “Text” icon in the upper-right corner of your screen.
    3. Type the desired text.
    4. Press the text sticker on the screen.
    5. Select the “Text to speech” option.

    Create automated dubs with Speechify

    TikTok audio tools and available voices have been recently expanded. However, the app lacks in diversity of voices and languages it supports for quality dubs and voice-overs. For this reason, you should consider investing in a text to speech (TTS) software program.

    As the name suggests, a TTS program converts any text into audio. This opens up a world of possibilities in terms of materials you can use for dubbing videos.

    Speechify is one of the leading TTS apps on the market. It’s available for all major platforms, including an iOS app for iPhones and iPads and an Android app.

    With Speechify, you can highly customize your dubs. Start with choosing one of the app’s many natural-sounding voices. Then, you can change the reading speed and pitch to match your desired video. Also, you can reduce background noise for crisp audio output. Best of all, you can save all your audio files and use them on any advanced video editing apps you’d like.

    Speechify will undoubtedly help you on your dubbing journey, whether you’re experienced or just learning the ropes. Even better, you can use Speechify for various other purposes, such as improving focus and productivity, developing better listening and reading skills, and creating audio files.
