TikTok began rolling out a new text-to-speech feature this week that will automatically convert text to a voiceover as users watch videos that have the feature enabled. Our guide will show you how to activate text-to-speech on your videos before posting them.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the TikTok application on iOS.

Step 1: Once you’ve recorded or uploaded a video in TikTok, tap the “Text” button at the bottom of the screen.

Step 4: Tap “Text-to-speech.” This will cause the application to convert this text to speech that becomes part of the video’s audio.
