Our Text to Speech feature is designed to be user-friendly and seamless, empowering authors to create immersive and accessible courses effortlessly. Through audio and voiceover capabilities, we aim to make your course content more engaging, impactful, and inclusive for learners worldwide. Authors can click the Generate Audio button to convert selected text into clear, natural-sounding audio.

Benefits of Text to Speech (TTS) in Course Creation

  • Accessibility and Inclusivity: With TTS, you create a more inclusive learning environment, allowing visually impaired learners or those with reading difficulties to access course content through audio.

  • Enhanced Learning Experience: TTS allows for multimodal learning, combining visual and auditory cues, catering to diverse learning styles and preferences, and boosting retention.

  • Time and Cost Efficiency: Save time and resources by automatically generating audio without manual voiceover recording, making the course creation process faster and more streamlined.

  • Global Reach: By supporting multiple languages and accents, TTS enables you to reach a global audience, breaking language barriers and fostering international engagement.

Who Can Access Text-to-Speech

The Text to Speech feature is available to our Trial, Team, and Enterprise clients. For our Free and Pro plan users, it will be available as an add-on feature, so you will need to click the Request a Demo button to proceed with enabling this feature.

How to Use Text-to-Speech

With Text to Speech, you can easily convert up to 3000 text characters into audio. This allows you to narrate sizeable sections of your course content, making it more accessible and engaging for your learners.

You can access the Text to Speech functionality through the content options:

  • A voiceover block

  • Single audio content block

  1. Paste the text into the Your text field, and type the audio title.

  2. On the right, under the Voice settings, you can select from 31 languages and 55 voices and use five playback speed modes (to adjust the speed, click on the bar below the speed option you would like to set).

  3. Once you have set the language, voice, and playback speed, click the Generate audio button to check how it sounds.

  4. At the bottom of the window, you can pause, scroll through the audio preview, and check the length of the audio.

  5. If satisfied with the result, click Save and add audio at the top right. If not, adjust the settings to your liking and click Generate audio again.

Once the text is converted into audio using TTS, the generated audio files will be automatically saved in your Easygenerator library. You can reuse the audio for different courses or modules, saving valuable time during content creation.

Note: If you encounter any issues, click the Generate Audio button again to get the desired output.

Edit Text-to-Speech

You can edit the text, voice, speed, and title of the audio created with Text to Speech from the voice-over block, single audio content block, and from the audio library by clicking

Once all changes are made, click the Save changes button.

NOTE: The updated version will replace the original one.

Text-to-Speech Audio in Translated Courses

It's important to note that when you use text-to-speech to create audio, it is saved in your media library within your Easygenerator account. This audio, also known as the "master audio," is the only file that will be used in all course duplicates, including copies created during course translation.

This means that if you duplicate a course or translate it into another language, the master audio will remain the same. It's crucial to not make any changes to the audio that was created with text-to-speech, as this will change the master audio in your media library. This, in turn, will affect all courses where the audio was used.

If you do need to make changes to the audio in a translated course, it's best to delete the existing audio completely and create a new one from scratch using a translator and text-to-speech. This will ensure that the master audio in your media library remains unchanged and that all courses using it will not be affected.

In summary, when using text-to-speech audio in Easygenerator, it's important to keep in mind that the master audio in your media library is the only file that will be used in all course duplicates and translations. Avoid making changes to this audio and instead, create new audio files for translated courses if needed.
