TTS Editor

Use our Text-to-Speech Editor to create audio from plain text.
This guide explains how to create audio from text using the Text-to-Speech Editor (TTS Editor) in your BeyondWords dashboard. This is ideal if you are unable to create audio automatically.
You can also edit audio in the TTS Editor, even if it was created automatically.
  1. 1.
    Go to the 'Content (Audios)' section of your project dashboard (don't have one? Create a project)
  2. 2.
    Select 'Text-to-Speech Editor' or 'Create audio'
  3. 3.
    Type or paste your title and body content into the TTS Editor (consider optimizing your text for a spoken format) — your default voices will be applied automatically
