  • Press-the-Plus-icon-at-the-bottom-of-your-screen

  • Step 4: On the next screen, enter the text that you want to add to your TikTok video and choose your text formatting option.

  • Select-Text-to-speech
  • Step 6: On the Text-to-speech window, select the type of voice you want to have your text read aloud by selecting the voice and then selecting the circle next to the phrase Apply [name of voice option] to text. the following audio version. Afterward, select Done in the upper right corner.

Part 2. How to Change Text-to-speech Voice using Voice Changer for your TikTok Videos

It’s nice and all that TikTok text-to-speech is already implemented in the app itself. However, what if you want your voice to sound even more unique? What if you want to sound like Darth Vader, Alvin the Chipmunk, or Batman? That’s when you can use voice changer software to modify your voice even further. A prime example of these apps is UnicTool’s MagicVox, a premium voice changer that works in real-time for many applications such as OBS, Discord, and, yes, even TikTok.

  • When you export the voice file in “MP3" or "WAV" from MagicVox, then upload it to your favorite editor software like Adobe PR, then put this voice on the original audio track, now you have changed the voice successfully.

Now that you have your new, modified TikTok video, you can publish that video and awe everyone with your cool new voice-altering trick. As you can see, MagicVox can do a bit more work for you than TikTok's default options.

Conclusion

TikTok Text-to-speech feature is a neat little way for anyone too shy to use their own voice. However, it has its limitations, such as having too few options to pick from. Those may not sound like your voice, or may not sound cool enough. And with so many TikTok users, they can become boring after a while.

Therefore, apps such as MagicVox can help your TikTok text-to-speech videos stand out by using unique voice presets that will surprise every viewer coming across your content.
