How Do You Make an Announcer Voice?
- Posted on
With more and more channels and content creators publishing news-related content, the demand for a good sounding announcer voice is high.
Luckily, it's entirely possible to get an announcer voice via text to speech which will save you a lot of time and money, but also make your news content more consistent.
As you can see in the video below, we used a sports announcer character to voice a scenario where the news was hockey related, and all it took was 10 minutes to get them to read aloud the text.
How to use the Typecast editor to get your announcer voice
Below is a step-by-step guide on how you can get your announcer style voice using our AI-powered word reader:
Visit the typecast.ai voice editor
We will be using Typecast to get the right announcer-style voice for our content, and we can do that without needing an account.
Visit the Typecast editor which will open up a template that we can edit and change to suit what we want.
Choose your voice actor for the announcer role
Once you’re in the editor, click on the icon of the character on the left above your text. This will take you to the AI voice actors menu.
To get an announcer-style voice, look at the filters on the left and under the Content tab select the Reporter/Announcer checkbox.
After previewing the voices, you can just click on whichever announcer you want and select Change in the bottom right corner.
Create your announcer script
You’ll be taken back to the editor where you can write what you want the AI voice over to say via text to speech, or, just copy and paste in your script if you've written it elsewhere.
Don’t forget to preview how your announcer voice actor will read your text. It’s good to evaluate every so often by clicking on the play at the bottom of the editor.
Customize the voice
The voice may not sound exactly how you want it at first, which is normal, so we can fix that by adjusting the voice settings on the right.
On the right hand side, you're see a bunch of options such as:
- Speech Pace
Take the time to play around with these settings and you'll get your voice sounding exactly the way you want it in no time.
If you need a little guidence with how these settings work then you can read our Getting Started guide.
Download and use
Once you’re satisfied with the announcer voice over, click on the Download button at the bottom.
You'll need to make an account or sign in to download the audio.
Once you click download, a menu will popup that gives you some options.
The options are pretty self explanatory so choose the ones that work for you! Usually the safe option is an mp3 format in HD depending on your plan.
Hopefully your announcer voice came out the way you wanted it! Typecast doesn't just have announcer voices though.
Typecast currently has over 180+ virtual characters and actors for both voice generator text to speech and video.
