Synthetic voices

The default way of adding voice-over to videos in Studio1 is using synthetic voices.

A synthetic voice is computer-generated speech. We use Google's Text-to-Speech service, which produces almost-human-sounding voice-overs.

All you have to do is pick your voice and enter the text you want it to say. Voice-over is instantly synthesized. This allows for quick prototyping of new videos and quick edits to existing videos.

Here's a walk-through of how to use synthetic voices:
