Frequently asked questions

  • Text to speech isn't pronouncing a word correctly. Can I fix this?


    Pronunciation issues can be easily fixed with intentional misspelling or phonetic spelling (spelling a word like it sounds). It might take some trial and error but you'll eventually get it right.

    If numbers are not being pronounced how you want them, try writing them out in full, e.g. "1984" becomes "nineteen eighty-four".

  • Does punctuation affect my text to speech delivery?


    You can use punctuation to make small but impactful changes to your text to speech delivery. Here's how it works:

    • Full stops. These will add a moderate pause to your text to speech before the next sentence begins.

    • Commas. A comma will add a short pause to your text to speech before the sentence continues.

    • Ellipses. Adding an ellipsis (aka ...) to your text to speech will result in a prolonged pause. The longer you make it, the longer your text to speech will pause.

    What about exclamation and question marks?

    At this point in time, exclamation and question marks are unlikely to affect the delivery of your text to speech.

  • There are 14 voices to choose from. Will you be adding more?

    We certainly hope to!

    We've recently added eight new voices to our text to speech offering, and we think they're great additions to Clipchamp. Even better? With time, the AI voice technology we use gets better and better.

    As this feature evolves, we may begin to add even more – we'll always keep you updated on new developments.

  • What languages is the text to speech generator available in?

    Our text to speech generator is currently only available in English.

    As this feature evolves, we may begin to add more languages – we'll always keep you updated on new developments.
