Text-to-speech audio effect, a timeless trend from TikTok

Many of these videos also include closed captions of the text being played (to increase accessibility, especially for hearing-impaired and deaf users).

These text-to-speech programs also read emojis, and for some, it’s interesting to hear how a computer interprets many of our most used emojis.

For this, there are several ways to create the text-to-speech effect on TikTok including apps. The social platform has also launched a text-to-speech function already present in the application to increase its accessibility.

All you need to do is type the desired text into a text box while editing your video and then select ‘text to speech’. This automatically generates a sound from the text you type on the screen.

Now you know what you have to do. It’s your turn !
