Sometimes, when you’re trying to make a career out of being a YouTuber, there are some difficulties in the way, like being too shy to be on camera, having a bad image or sound quality, or don’t have the correct equipment, among other things. It’s really discouraging when this happens and people usually don’t tend to continue with their videos after facing obstacles.
However, there is always another way to do things so you can reach your goal. You can borrow some stuff from your friends or family or have a type of content that doesn’t require showing your face, etcetera. Among those possibilities, there is the option to use a text-to-speech tool.
If you don’t know what a TTS is we can simply tell you that it is a tool that uses assistive technology that makes a computer o tablet talk aloud to the user depending on what codes of text were introduced. This device is used by people of all ages, and it also allows anybody to have access to digital information.
So, how can this be of use to you? Some TTS programs have access to extremely realistic voices, allowing you to utilize them without your listeners noticing that it is not you speaking, but software. You may also download the audio and modify the bits you don’t like before publishing it to the internet using these tools.
If you want to do a video without showing your face, you can also use a one image video tool. This is a software that allows you to make a video with just a photo and an audio. This way, you combine this and the TTS and you’ll have a great video.
Let us explain you step by step:
- First, you need to have a text writing by you.
- Go to www.GetWoord.com and select ‘Online Reader,’ or download the Chrome extension.
- Paste your text on the whiteboard, select the voice gender and language, and then press ‘Speak It’.
- Download the audio to your computer.
- Go to https://www.oneimagevideo.com/, browse the photo you wish to use as a video and the audio created by Woord. Press upload and wait for it to be done.
And that’s it! You’ll get a good video for your YouTube channel without showing your face.
With Woord, the TTS tool, you can also choose from a large selection of languages, the gender of the voice, the format, and the speed of the final audio. This tool is suitable for users, youngsters learning to read, e-learning, lectures, YouTube videos, Tiktok, Instagram, Twitch, and Facebook, as well as improving the accessibility of a website.
Also, Woord is available for Windows and Mac OS X and can read a variety of material, including webpages, blogs, text files, PDF documents, and ePub files.
