You can use TikTok’s text-to-speech feature to change your voice, but there are several limitations. You can’t use Siri-sounding voice, and the video length is limited. Changing the voice is also not free. You have to pay $1 per video, and you can only use the feature for videos less than three minutes.
Limitation of Siri-sounding voice
In a lawsuit filed against TikTok, voice actor Bev Standing alleges that the platform used her voice for its text-to-speech feature without her consent. Her complaint is similar to that of the original American voice of Siri, Susan Bennett. Although Bennett was paid for her recording, she was unaware that the company had been using her voice on millions of Apple devices for free. Fortunately, some companies are making strides to make themselves more accountable to the voice-acting industry. In an attempt to protect voice-acting actors, some have approached SAG-AFTRA representatives to seek guidance on how to avoid using a voice that sounds similar to Siri.
The text-to-speech function on TikTok is much like the one available in Apple’s Siri. The technology enables you to convert any text into speech by using an automated voice. While the voice of the text-to-speech feature is similar to Siri’s, it is not completely voice-compatible. Some users have reported difficulty in using the feature.
TikTok’s text-to-speech feature allows creators to add a virtual voiceover to their videos. This feature eliminates the need for captions and audio clips. However, it has several drawbacks. For one, it uses a single voice, which is not always the best choice. As a result, the feature is unsuitable for some types of content. It doesn’t offer a variety of voices and sometimes gives inaccurate pronunciations.
Limitation of video length
The short video length of TikTok has been a major complaint for users, but the company is working to change this. It is now limiting videos to ten minutes. The previous limit was three minutes and 60 seconds. This change will give creators more freedom to film longer videos.
The new text-to-speech feature is only available on the latest version of the TikTok app, so be sure to update. Before recording a video, make a storyboard with the text you want to turn into speech. This will give you a general idea of how much of the voice you will want to use. The new text-to-speech voice can be as long as the video itself.
You can change the voice of a TikTok video by selecting the “Change voice” option in the app. You can choose a male or female voice based on your preferences. The new TikTok voice option also works with audio files. The AI-powered voice will read the text out loud in videos, allowing visually impaired users to hear text.
The text-to-speech feature is easy to use. Simply type the text you want to hear, and click “Enable text to speech”. You will be asked to confirm your selection, and the editor will remember the settings. Afterward, you can turn off text-to-speech by clicking on the text and clicking “Undo” at the top of the screen.
