TikTok text to speech voice

Featured in

    TikTok is not only one of the largest but also one of the most creative social media platforms today. Here’s how you can make it even more unique with TTS.

    How to Use TikTok’s text to speech voice

    TikTok has been giving its competition a run for its money for quite some time now, approaching the numbers of Instagram and Twitter and, at times, even beating them at their own game. Its secret is its insistence on short-format videos and trends that can easily go viral at any moment, which appeals to most of the younger demographics on the internet.

    Since the TikTok video format is so short, the users have to look for creative ways to make their content stand out. Among the more common strategies for ensuring more clout is relying on the built-in text-to-speech features that come with the app to create engaging and unique voice-overs.

    Voice options available

    While TikTok videos might be famous for their memey and catchy tunes, content creators are rarely satisfied with just music nowadays. Instead, they turn to the text-to-speech option as well to make their videos pop up and go viral.

    When editing your videos in the TikTok app, you’ll have plenty of different voices to try out. Nowadays, they all have unique names (like Alex and Joey), and they sound different, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from, no matter what kind of content you are making.

    There were, of course, both male and female voice actors who served as voice models, but you can use third-party voice generators to create a new voice and give your videos an original sound that will make them pop!

    How to change the AI voice

    Changing the AI voice on TikTok is easy. If you’ve got the latest version of the app, simply record a video, tap Text at the bottom of the screen, and simply type in the new text you want to be narrated in your video. Once you’ve typed everything in, tap on the text box and hold until the text-to-speech options show up. Then, all you have to do is choose the voice you like the most from the list of those that are available.  

    You can also use custom sound files on TikTok. In the editing window, simply tap on the down arrow button in the side menu, and then tap on Audio Editing. Next, tap on the Record button and record your voice. Finally, tap on the Replace original sound button at the bottom of the screen, and then tap on the Save button. For a more interesting effect, you can use voice changers while recording your audio to make your end product even more unique.

    Applying filters/effects

    Adding voice-overs is easy, but making them unique is where your creativity is truly going to shine. In addition to custom voices, you should add some background music, play around with voice filters, maybe try mixing some audio clips, etc.

    Some of the most common ways people experiment with TikTok voice effects include transition effects and overlays, which can produce some pretty cool effects when you combine them with stickers, hashtags, and similar video editing shenanigans.

    Adding filters is also easy. Once you’ve recorded the video, you can click on the checkmark button somewhere at the bottom of the screen. That will lead you to a new window where you can select different voices and voice filters.

    FAQ 

    Why don’t I have the text to speech option on TikTok?

    TikTok’s text to speech feature is available to everyone. Make sure you have the latest version of the app downloaded from the Google Play/Apple Store. If you still cannot see the TTS feature when recording and editing your videos, there is most likely something wrong with your device. For more information, you can contact the TikTok support team.

    What is text to speech?

    In short, text to speech is the process of converting text into audio and having your computer or mobile device read it out loud for you. Text-to-speech is commonly used in e-learning and for medicinal purposes, for example, as assistive technology for those who cannot rely on traditional reading methods due to some reading disability or disorders such as ADHD and Autism.

    What is the difference between the text to speech options on TikTok?

    There are plenty of TTS options on TikTok, and the main difference between them is in the actual voices. In addition to male and female voices, you can also experiment with additional filters and effects, for example, echo and reverb.

    Is there a way to make the voices sound more realistic on TikTok?

    The best way to make your TikTok sounds more realistic is to use only select text-to-speech solutions that can deliver authentic, humanlike AI voices in lossless formats such as FLAC or WAV. You can download Speechify on your iPhone or Android device for the most sophisticated, high-quality speech synthesis and realistic voices. In addition, if you are recording your own voice and using it as a sample, try making the audio clear and loud, and if you can, use high-quality recording equipment.
