AI voice generator examples 

Perfect for creators

Adding a voice synthesizer to your video can capture the attention of your audience, make videos easier to follow, highlight funny moments, and read on-screen text out loud. AI voices are even a great addition to blog content as they talk through the footage, giving blogs extra context and explanations.

Perfect for businesses

Using a text-to-voice generator is one of the fastest ways to make your business videos accessible to more employees and customers. AI voices can create consistent corporate videos, reimagine culture videos with narration, and refine training videos and screen recordings.

Polish your education presentations, make virtual learning content more engaging and entertaining and highlight valuable lesson plans with the help of our voiceover maker.

Use punctuation to make impactful speed changes to your text-to-speech voiceover: 

  • Full stops add a moderate pause to your text-to-speech.

  • Commas add a short pause to your text-to-speech.

  • Ellipses (“ …”) add a long pause in your voiceover. 

  • Question marks change the intonation of your voiceover. 

  • Exclamation marks will not change the delivery of your text to speech.

  • Typing in all caps will not change the delivery of your voiceover.

Can I add subtitles to my video with AI text to speech?

Yes. We recommend adding subtitles on videos with a voiceover to increase your video's accessibility and reach.
