Adding an Automated Voice to a Video


Background

An automated voice (text-to-speech) enables you to easily create a voice-over directly from your script. Using an automated voice has many benefits, among them: 

  • The voice-over creation process is immediate.

  • You are not dependent on any external resources. There is no need to find a suitable voice talent, coordinate recording sessions, review the recording, or have multiple iterations.

  • Using an automated voice is completely free of charge.

  • If you do need to make an edit, it can be done very quickly.
Notes:
1. By default, a video started from scratch uses the voice Sofia - Narrator.
2. Before publishing, you'll need to choose the voice that you want for the video.

If you decide to use a human (recorded) voice instead of an automated one, reach out to your SundaySky contact to coordinate the process.


Adding an Automated Voice

1.

Open the relevant video in the Studio.

2.

Review all the scenes in the video and make sure that you are happy with the voice-over written for each scene.
▶ If you are using a personalization token or audience messaging in your voice-over, make sure that all the configurations are correct.
