    How to make an AI voice narration

    AI voice generators are a powerful tool for creating top-tier digital content. They are gaining popularity worldwide, especially among video content creators and social media professionals, and they are used for high-quality podcasts, tutorials, and natural-sounding audio files.

    Voice actors, for example, use their own voices to illustrate different voices in characters—but with the help of AI voice generators, they can take their performance to the next level.

    Even if you’re just curious about voice cloning, artificial intelligence, or voiceovers in general, it doesn’t hurt to explore your options regarding AI voiceovers and AI text to speech (TTS) tools.

    Additionally, doing research will only make your content richer. If synthetic voices and TTS engines can help you, why not try them out?

    Step 1: Preparation

    Before using any speech generator, there are a few steps you need to take first, starting with preparation. AI voiceover tools will help you create more engaging content, but making an effort to write your content and doing audience research, for example, will set you up for success.

    Writing your script

    Generated voices can be used in real-time, but writing a script will make your job far easier. Instead of reading out loud, you can let AI technology do that for you. Just upload your document, adjust voice settings, and generate the audio.

    Tips that can help you with content writing:

    1. Do extensive research on the topic in question.

    2. Write an outline for your content (subject, title, subtitles, highlighted paragraphs).

    3. Use a spellcheck tool.

    4. Upload the first draft in a text to speech tool to see how it would sound, how long it would take, etc.

    5. Rewrite to improve dynamic.

    Target audience and messaging

    Content is one part—the people who consume your content are the other. A detailed description of your audience will help you better define your messages and find the right niche and topics.

    If you are creating, let’s say, origami tutorials, a vibrant voice-over will help you avoid monotony. On the other hand, voice actors can expand their portfolio and reach more people with high-quality voice content showing off their creativity.

    Choosing voice types

    When you’ve written a script and set your audience, it will be easy to choose voices to best illustrate your content. Based on previously defined needs, you can embark on a search for your go-to AI voice generator.

    Some of the criteria you might consider when choosing a speech generator:

    • Custom voice options

    • APIs

    • Use cases

    • Video editing options (if needed)

    • Customer support availability

    AI voice generators

    The realm of AI voiceovers can be confusing to newcomers, and that’s okay. Some tools specialize in e-learning, others in speech synthesis, and you’ll probably need to try out some of them first to determine if you’re a good fit.

    For example, real-time speech-to-speech software might be more helpful in live streaming and podcasts. Text to speech tools, on the other hand, are better for explainer videos, tutorials, audio ads, and social media content.

    Text to speech generator sites

    Murf.ai, Clipchamp, and Synthesys are some of the most popular TTS generator sites. Murf Studio can be useful to educators, marketers, and authors. Clipchamp is more suitable for video creation and video editors, and Synthesys is great for commercial use.

    Play.ht has a great choice of text to speech AI voices, and Speechify is the easiest to use on any device you have at hand.  

    Speech to speech generator sites

    In the world of speech-to-speech generators, Lovo, Synthesia, and Descript are some of the common names. Realistic voices are something these speech generator sites can offer easily, along with other valuable features.

    Lovo has a great collection of unique voices, Synthesia is a credible AI video creation platform, and Descript will help you out in the editing of voice recordings.

    Selecting a voice

    Choosing voices to bring your content to life can be challenging, even if you do your research right. So, before making the final decision, make sure to check these boxes:

    • Number of languages and dialects available

    • Library diversity (male/female, old/young voices)

    • Additional enhancement features (e.g., speed)

    If you need subtitles, check if the tool offers that option. However, if you create YouTube videos, check if there might be a useful API to simplify your process.

    Cost of AI voice narration

    Pricing for AI voiceover generators varies depending on the value they offer to their users. Ideally, you will find the tool that meets all your expectations, and purchasing it won’t be a cost but an investment.

    Even if your budget is zero, there are still free tools (or free versions of premium tools) that can enrich your content. If your demand increases and you start to generate more content (daily, weekly), you’ll probably need to allocate an adequate budget.

    Prices vary from $10 to $100 a month or, even more in some cases, depending on the audio and video features you need. Nonetheless, your average TTS engine should fit in the range of $10–$20 for monthly expenses.
